Greek Yogurt Chicken

I think Greek yogurt is awesome and this was better than I expected!  Marinating the chicken overnight (or 24 hours in this case) in yogurt and spices made it very tender and flavorful.  The night got away from me between a yoga class and drinks with friends so as you can see, we had chicken with a side of chicken but if I had planned better this dish would go well with a similarly Greek-themed side like a feta-zucchini bake or spanikopita.

To buy:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts

Greek Yogurt Chicken: (serves 2)

  • combine first nine ingredients in a bowl and add chicken, coating chicken with mixture
  • refrigerate overnight
  • place chicken in pan and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes until cooked all the way through and serve immediately
