Chobani Lemon Pepper Chicken!

So I LOVE creating chicken marinades using Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt. I threw together this simple recipe last week and it was AMAZING!

What you will need:

  • Chicken Breast
  • Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Lemon Pepper
  • Lemons
  • Tumeric

First thing you will want to do is butterfly and cut your chicken breasts into strips or cubes. You don't have to do this but I find the flavors penetrate the chicken better if you cut it into smaller pieces. Also if your chicken breasts are not thick to begin with then don't worry about butterflying them. When you are done place the chicken into some type of dish.

Next you will need to cut the lemons and squeeze the juice from them over the chicken, I used 2 lemons.

Then add 1 Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt and mix everything together.

After that you will sprinkle lemon paper and turmeric over the chicken, I just eyeballed the measurements.

Then you will mix everything again, cover it and place in the fridge for 24-48 hours. The longer you let it marinate the more intense the flavor is! This time I only marinated it for 24 hours.

You can cook the chicken anyway you want. I find that the best way is to cook it on the grill. Now there is a little secret to cooking marinated chicken on the grill. You want to start it out on some foil sprayed in nonstick or olive oil.

Once it gets a little cooked you can move it from the foil to the actual grill. Cooking it on the foil first helps keep the marinade from burning off.

The finished product

Humm, sounds interesting. I've never cooked with yogurt before. I just recently shared my first recipe post and I said that I am not one for following recipes but I can remember this and will certainly give it a try.
