Lemon and yogurt have been used as a marinade for grilled chicken recipes for centuries. This grilled chicken recipe is very simple and the yogurt marinade keeps the chicken tender and moist. The marinade also adds a subtly tangy, and delicious flavor.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes


1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (any plain yogurt will work)
1 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp dried Italian herb blend
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large chicken, cut into sections


Whisk together all the ingredients in a large bowl and add the chicken pieces. Toss very well to completely coat the chicken with the yogurt marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, up to overnight.

Preheat grill. Remove chicken from the marinade, wiping off any excess. Season with additional salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, if desired. Brush hot grates lightly with oil, and grill over medium heat until the chicken is cooked through.
