I've been on a big yogurt based marinade kick lately. There is just something wonderful that happens when you marinade chicken in it... it's like mayo, only better for you :) It gives the chicken such a moist texture, that I would rather marinade it in yogurt than brine (shhhhh, don't tell anyone!!)
This is yet another very simple recipe... throw the ingredients together, let it meld together for a few hours, toss it on the grill and you're done. The perfect solution for a busy week night!
And stop by on Friday when I share the recipe for those delicious looking potatoes with you!!
Yogurt and Lemon Marinated Chicken
Adapted from About.com
- Serves 2 -
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
5 oz Geek yogurt
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
zest of 1 lemon
1 Tablespoon Hungarian sweet paprika
1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
In a measuring cup or small bowl, mix together all the ingredients, except the chicken, until well combined. Place chicken in shallow dish or resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over, making sure both sides are covered. Seal or cover and place in refrigerator for 4 hours.
Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. Remove chicken from marinade, shaking off any excess. Place directly over the fire and grill 8-10 minutes per side, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
