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.
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.
