Greek Yogurt Chicken

by on September 6, 2010 · 10 comments

This weekend I did some cooking and baking with Greek yogurt — Voskos brand, to be specific. The company sent me some free samples and I wanted to try them before holding a  yogurt giveaway.

The giveaway is coming soon, but for now I wanted to share a recipe that was so good it deserved its own post.

Greek Yogurt Chicken

I pulled this off the Voskos web site where it’s featured as a recipe from celebrity fitness trainer Christine Avanti. Normally I would have gone straight to the baked goods, but this recipe  seemed especially appealing with yogurt, cumin, garlic and parsley and I needed to make something for dinner.

It’s a pretty straightforward chicken recipe, but the yogurt soak and the spices come together in a big way. The yogurt tenderizes the chicken of course, but what the  family loved was the flavor from the tang of the yogurt and the zing of lemon and cumin. The recipe was a lot of bang for the buck and I’m definitely putting it into rotation. I served it with plain white rice, but it would be fabulous with roast potatoes, basmati rice or just a big pile of steamed vegetables.

Here’s a link to the recipe.

Anna, I think this is the 1st time I saw you posted savory dish, mostly I saw you posting on sweet treats! This dish looks delicious, I love any chicken dish :).

This chicken looks really tasty. I like that it looks slightly breaded, which I don’t do very often. I’ll try this soon, when I’m no longer grilling out almost daily.

Yum! Must try it! Greek Yogurt is so pricey and my ‘cheap’ self has not been able to break down and buy it….think you’ve finally convinced me, thanks!!

That looks yummy! I’ll definitely give it try!

I agree with Jess, I think it’s the first time I ever saw a post on cooking. The chicken looks so good, even better than Voskos’. I checked out their website and the picture of their chicken doesn’t look as good as your’s.

This sounds superb! Love yoghurt coated chicken – haven’t made anything like this for years.

I’ve always wanted to try yogurt chicken, but it just never comes to mind when I’m picking out recipes. This looks great! It’s going on the list for sure now!

It looks and sounds just amazing!

This sounds great! I have yet to use greek yogurt in a recipe and not like it!

This was so yummy! Even my hubby, who doesn’t like yogurt, liked it. My picky 3 year old loved it. Thank you for the recipe, it will definitely be in our dinner rotation. :)Oh, and I used Vanilla Greek yogurt, because that’s what I had in the fridge, and it worked fine.
