This has to be one of my favourite marinade flavours for chicken skewers, chicken breasts and even a whole roast chicken. It goes perfectly with my Greek Lemon Rice and is the marinade I use in my Greek Rice Bowls.
The secret ingredient in this greek flavoured marinade is greek yoghurt! It not only provides gorgeous flour but tenderises the chicken at the same time. It grills perfectly without burning which is exactly what you want in a BBQ chicken marinade.
- Greek yoghurt
- Minced garlic
- Lemon juice
- Parsley (fresh or dried)
- Oregano (dried)
- Thyme (dried)
- Olive oil
- Salt & Pepper
See recipe card for quantities.
If you’re using whole chicken breasts, butterfly them, and bang them out using a rolling pin.
Cover in the marinade and cook in the oven, BBQ or frypan.
If you are making chicken skewers, dice chicken breast and place chicken pieces on a wooden skewer.
Cook in the oven, BBQ or frypan.
