  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • juice and zest of 1 fresh lemon

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  1. Place chicken thighs in a large Ziploc bag.

  2. In a bowl, whisk together yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, and seasonings. Pour mixture over the chicken, seal the Ziploc bag, and toss to coat. 

  3. Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours and up to overnight.

  4. When ready to grill, preheat the grill for 10 minutes. Place chicken directly on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes per side. Continue to cook until cooked through. Once cooked through, remove from grill and allow the chicken to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
