Ok, Lemon Chicken has been the order of business lately and we have two more recipes to throw in the mix. We are having a veritable Lemon Chicken Smackdown, and its up to you all to vote for your favorite. Besides the Lemon Artichoke and Mushroom Chicken Breasts and the Lemon Pepper Chicken Thighs, Ariel has tested out a fantastic recipe for Dad's Grilled Lemon Chicken from Everyday Paleo and I am marinating chicken for Lemony Yogurt Grilled Chicken. Do a cooking challenge at home and tell me what you think!
Lemony Yogurt Grilled Chicken
3 cups plain greek yogurt (not paleo but great protein)
2 lemons, juiced
2 tsp garlic
1 tsp sea salt
1 4-oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
chopped fresh herbs or a couple shakes of garlic herb seasoning
Mix all ingredients except chicken and reserve 1/2 cup. Put rest in a ziploc bag with chicken and marinate for 30 min to 6 hours. Heat grill to high, then reduce to med before cooking meat. Discard marinade and grill meat 4-7 min per side. Serve with reserved yogurt and a couple of fresh lemon slices.
