Greek Marinated Chicken

We wanted to get back to basics this week.... reboot our diet after a rough weekend with amazing food and the Super Bowl snacking. 

This recipe isn't the *healthiest* because of the yogurt. But by using greek yogurt, it can be healthier. You can use plain yogurt - but I don't know how that will turn out. You can serve it with some Tzatini sauce. Mine didn't turn out like this picture (that I swapped from Pinterest.) 

Greek Marinated Chicken  
  • 1 cup greek yogurt 
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil 
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 Tbsp dried oregano 
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 medium lemon zest juice from 1/2 lemon 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • freshly cracked pepper 
  • 3 to 4 lbs chicken pieces (I used boneless skinless, the picture used skinned and boned. Maybe that's where I went wrong?)

  1. Combine marinade. 
  2. Place pieces in marinade in gallon ziplock for 3-5 hours. 
  3. Bake 375 45-60 minutes or grill.
