You'll love this chicken recipe! The greek yogurt makes the chicken extra moist.
Serves: 8
  • 4 lbs chicken pieces
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (I used Fage 0% plain)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ table spoon dried oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ bunch fresh parsley
  • 1 lemon
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • freshly cracked pepper
  1. First make the marinade. Mix the Greek yogurt, olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, salt and some freshly cracked pepper in a bowl. Scrape the thin layer of yellow zest from the lemon skin into the same bowl (you can use a holed cheese grater or a zester). Also add about 1-2 tablespoons from the juice of the lemon. Stir until the ingredients are well combined. Roughly chop a big handful, or about ¼ bunch, of parsley and stir it into the marinade. Now your freshly made marinade is finished.
  2. Add the chicken pieces to the bowl and mix them around. You can use any type of chicken. Refrigerate the bowl and let it sit there for about 30 minutes.
  3. After marinating for 30 minutes, cook the chicken on a grill (great for summer evenings) or preheat the oven to 375 degrees in preparation to bake the chicken. To bake the chicken, place the chicken pieces in a large casserole dish. Bake the chicken in the preheated 375 degree oven for 45-60 minutes. When you open the oven the chicken will be be golden brown on top and the amazing smell will make your mouth water.
  4. Now it’s time to eat and enjoy your greek yogurt chicken!
