Greek Marinated Chicken Recipe Review

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ Tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 medium lemon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • ¼ bunch fresh parsley
  • 3½ to 4 lbs chicken pieces

For directions, please visit Budget Bytes.

Recipe Notes:

I dump the marinade into the baking pan with the chicken, which produces a lot of delicious sauce. I recommend cooking some rice on the side to soak all the goodness up. This recipe is also excellent with the Lemony Cucumber and Couscous Salad from the same blog.

Recipe Review:

Easy to make, but super moist and flavorful! Budget Bytes is one of my favorite recipe blogs and great recipes like this are the reason why.
