Greek Lemon Chicken

As you know I'm always looking for new recipes - whether for dinner, a family holiday or treats to share with friends. I think that's why I fell in love with Pinterest so quickly. I have found so many delicious recipes (and some so-so ones) including this Greek Marinated Chicken recipe.

Our family makes a Greek lemon soup that we just devour so I had a feeling we were going to love this. It was super simple and the meat came out juicy, tangy and full of flavor. I didn't follow the recipe exactly so if you're interested in the original you can find it here.

Greek Lemon Chicken


1 C plain Greek yogurt
3 TB olive oil + a little extra
1 TB crushed garlic
1/2 TB dried oregano
2 TB dried parsley
3 TB lemon juice
1 pkg chicken thighs (yes you could use breasts or anything)
Salt and pepper

1. Lightly drizzle olive oil over chicken thighs (both sides) then salt and pepper well.
2. Mix first six ingredients and poor over chicken to marinate (I put it all in a large zip lock baggie so I could massage the marinade into the meat).  Let sit 30 minutes.
3. Bake at 375, in a deep dish pan or dutch oven, for 30-45minutes or until meat is cooked through and skin is crispy.

I served mine with couscous, salad and naan. It was amazing - even the next day! Can't wait to make this again.
