This recipe of grilled Greek chicken is proof as it not only captures all the bold flavours of oregano, lemon and garlic but is also Mediterranean-inspired and super easy to make. We are going to savour a dinner date of grilled Greek chicken in reality.
Check out the recipe of grilled Greek chicken:
1 1/2 – 2 pounds chicken breast tenderloins
1 (6 oz) container of plain 0% nonfat Greek yogurt (a little less than 3/4 cup)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon (for zesting and juicing)
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Place chicken in a gallon-size Ziplock bag and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine Greek yogurt, olive oil, the zest of one lemon, the juice of that same lemon, garlic, oregano, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper.
Whisk together all ingredients until smooth. Set aside about 1/2 cup of the marinade to use for basting later. Pour the remaining marinade into the Ziplock bag of chicken. Let chicken marinade for 15 minutes or up to 3 hours in refrigerator.
When ready, grill the chicken and brush both sides with marinade until fully cooked. Enjoy.
