Yogurt Marinated Grilled Chicken

Category: Lunch & Dinner
Best for: Main
Serves:

Have you used yogurt as a marinade before? It is a great ingredient to tenderize meat.

Nearly every week I make a batch of yogurt marinated chicken thighs. I usually alternate between these Greek inspired chicken thighs and our recipe for Chilli Lime Chicken Thighs .

We use the chicken as a main for dinner,  on salads and in wraps for lunch all week long. This chicken is particularly delicious in a wrap with tzatziki and Greek salad! Or, try serving it with Greek salad, tzatziki and pita bread. It’s Delicious!

Ingredients
1/4 cup

Donia Farms Natural Yogurt

3 Tbsp

Lemon  juice

1 Tbsp

Apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp

Pesto

1/2 Tbsp

Olive oil

1 clove

Garlic, minced

1 tsp

Salt

1 tsp

Pepper

9 - 12

Chicken thighs

Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients until smooth.

  2. Add the chicken and marinade to a ziplock bag. Shake or stir the bag  until the chicken is coated. Remove all air from the bag and let it sit in the fridge for at least one hour, up to overnight.

     

  3. Heat the BBQ to a medium high heat about 400 degrees. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes on each side, or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees.

  4. Before serving, squish some fresh lemon juice on top of the chicken!
