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

Ingredients:

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

Directions:
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.
