Luckily this chicken really doesn't take any time at all, so I am sure we can get back around to it soon too. I'd like to get some better pictures, so that always moves a re-make up the list. (It's hard to justify making something we just had again when there are so many other things to make and share!) Not only has he asked for it again, but he has been telling people about it. That's an even better sign. I guess I better get to it.
All it takes is tossing the ingredients in a bag and letting them mix and meld for a few hours. I did get in there and flip the bag every so often and gave the drummies a gentle massage a few times just for good measure. Mostly it was because I was in the fridge anyway and it seemed like the thing to do. I am sure they would have been just as delicious without the extra love and attention!
This Greek week is off to a pretty tasty start. Now I want to know... what are your favorite Greek foods? And what is your favorite chicken marinade? We want to try them all!!
Lemon and Yogurt Marinated Grilled Chicken
3 tsp garlic powder
3 tsp apple cider vinegar
3 T lemon juice
1 T extra-virgin olive oil
3 T plain yogurt
2 T fresh oregano, chopped (or 1 if using dried)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2-3 pounds chicken
- In a large zipper topped bag, mix together the marinade ingredients.
- Add the chicken to the bag, seal closed. Then roll the chicken around in the marinade to make sure it is all coated.
- Refrigerate for 3-6 hours. If possible, rotate the bag and gently massage the chicken every once in a while to make sure all of the chicken is well covered and happy ;-)
- Remove chicken from marinade and grill until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 F.
