Grilled Lemon Herb Chicken Thighs

Coming at you today with more chicken! This delicious recipe pairs juicy dark meat chicken with lemon, yogurt, and herbs and the results are delicious. It really is the perfect summer chicken in my opinion and pairs great with some grilled veggies. I recommend making enough for leftovers because it is perfect paired with veggies and greens, turned into a quick chicken salad (yum!), chopped up into tacos, or really served up any which way.

    This is fabulous! My husband loved it and said it was pleasantly reminiscent of cream of chicken. It will be a recurring dinner option for sure!
