  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • juice and zest of one lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed or finely minced
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
Instructions
  1. Combine all of the ingredients except the chicken in a zip top plastic storage bag, and squeeze it around until everything is well mixed.

  4. Remove the chicken from the bag and wipe off some of the excess marinade.
