Yogurt Marinated Greek Chicken

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

What beats a tasty simple chicken recipe. Mediterranean flavours are my favourite and I make sure to incorporate a recipe or two in my weekly meals. Its super easy to make and mess free. All you need are your ingredients and a plastic bag. What could be easier? (WELL YOU COULD EAT OUT) but we truly do not want that…. ahaha

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 cup Activia plain yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp roasted chilli paste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 half chicken (preferably free range)

Instructions

  1. In a ziploc bag, add all the ingredients to the bag.
  2. Marinate chicken for an hour. (For best results, I usually marinate my chicken overnight to get the chicken very moist and juicy)
  3. On a parchment paper lined baking sheet, bake the chicken at 400 for 25 minutes
  4. The chicken will have a golden crust and will be so good; with the yogurt marinade it secures all the flavours.
  5. Serve with sweet potato mash and simple tomato and cucumber salad with hummus.
