Recipe

Yogurt is one of my favorite things to use for chicken marinade.  I find the chicken comes out deliciously tender and moist anytime I use yogurt as the marinade.  Usually I opt for Greek yogurt (since it is what I have at home most often) but plain yogurt would work as well.   To that I add garlic, spices or herbs, and citrus - usually lemon.  From there the chicken marinates over night and then it ready for the grill.  For some simple variations on this recipe consider using rosemary, oregano, dill, lot of black pepper, or marjoram.

Directions

  1. Combine the yogurt, olive oil, garlic, oregano, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a bowl or Ziploc bag. Add the chicken and marinate for at least 30 minutes in the fridge. Overnight is even better.
  2. When ready to grill, heat grill to medium high heat. Cook thighs directly on grill (letting excess marinade drip off) for 5 minutes per side.
  3. Oven Option: When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Add the chicken to the baking dish. Discard leftover marinade. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
