Make it!


  1. First, we want to prepare the marinade for the chicken. To do this, mix up your yogurt, olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, salt, and cracked pepper in a bowl.
  2. Then, using a zester, scrape a layer of yellow zest from the lemon skin into the bowl and then squeeze the  juice from half of the lemon (about 1-2 Tbsp) into your bowl and give it all a good stir.


  3. Toss in about ¼ bunch of your chopped parsley and then transfer your chicken pieces and marinade into a gallon sized zip top bag.
  4. Massage the bag to get the juices going and then stick it into the refrigerator for half an hour before grilling it up or baking at 350 for about 45 minutes to an hour.
  5. Serve this delicious juicy chicken with a nice crisp salad or your favorite pita bread. Enjoy!
