I am a sucker for Greek flavors and almost always order anything if there is feta cheese involved. So when I saw this idea on Cooking Classy I couldn't wait to try it. The chicken is marinated in a combination of yogurt, olive oil, lemon, oregano, thyme, basil, and dill which gives it a ton of flavor. I like things spicy so I usually add some red pepper flakes as well. Then after it's had time to marinate and soak up all the flavors, it takes a quick trip to the grill. Usually I like to pair this with a big Greek salad but its delicious with rice, grilled veggies, or wrapped up in pita bread for a healthy sandwich.
