Ingredients

Greek Chicken

  • 2 chicken breasts or four thighs
  • cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 lemons juiced
  • zest of one lemon
  • 4 cloves garlic pressed or minced
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp rosemary
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Sides

  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 1-2 onions chopped roughly
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch oregano, salt, pepper
  • lemon slices

Rice

  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp dill
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder

Instructions

  • Whisk together the ingredients for (one) marinade in a small bowl until combined.
  • Combine the marinade with the chicken in a ziplock freezer bag, and toss until the chicken is evenly coated in the marinade. Carefully press out the extra air in the bag before sealing. Let marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Heat oven to 425°F. Add chicken and marinade to a small baking dish. Bake chicken for 30 minutes with lemon slices and the onions and garlic cloves (that were tossed in olive oil and a pinch of salt/pepper/oregano)
  • While the chicken is baking, make your rice. I used white rice so it is a 1:1 water to rice ratio. Follow the instructions for the rice you choose to use. Mix in oregano, dill, and garlic powder for extra flavour.
  • Optional: once the chicken is done, broil it for 4-5 minutes for some extra colour. Once ready, let it set for 5 minutes before slicing to serve with the rice.
