Mediterranean Blend Lemon & Yoghurt Chicken
Lemon and yogurt have been used as a marinade for grilled chicken recipes for centuries. This grilled chicken recipe is very simple and the yogurt marinade keeps the chicken tender and moist. The marinade also adds a subtly tangy and delicious flavour.
½ cup plain Greek yogurt (any plain yogurt will work)
1 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 lg tbsp Spice&Easy Mediterranean Blend
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large chicken, cut into sections or 4 to 6 large chicken breasts
Whisk together all the ingredients in a large bowl and add the chicken pieces. Toss very well to completely coat the chicken with the yogurt marinade.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, up to overnight.
Remove chicken from the marinade, shake your Mediterranean Blend over the chicken. Season with additional salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, if desired.
Brush hot grates lightly with oil, and grill over medium heat until the chicken is cooked through
