Grilling the chicken with its yogurt coating keeps it succulent and flavourful. Instead of chicken breasts, you can also use eight boneless skinless chicken thighs if you prefer.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups plain Balkan-style yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • lemon wedges

Method

In large bowl, whisk together yogurt, oregano, oil, lemon rind and juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, turning occasionally. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place chicken on greased grill over medium heat; brush with any remaining marinade. Close lid and grill, turning once, until golden brown and no longer pink inside, about 12 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
