  • 5-6 chicken thighs boneless skinless
  • 1 cup yogurt Greek, unflavored
  • 1 tsp dill finely minced
  • 1 tsp parsley finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper freshly cracked


  • Combine the yogurt, dill, parsley, dried oregano, lemon juice, lemon zest , olive oil, 1 tsp salt, and pepper in a bowl.
  • Before marinating, salt the chicken thighs generously (approximately 2-3 tsp).
  • Mix the chicken in with the marinade and let it sit for 30 min but preferably overnight. This is a great dish to prep the night before.
  • When ready to cook, let the grill preheat. Grill the thighs for approximately 8-10 minutes each side or until done.
