Healthy Greek Chicken

I love Mediterranean flavors. This dish was inspired from a picture I saw on Pinterest. I came across the Greek Chicken and knew I had to try to make my own version of the recipe. I also make my own tzaziki sauce and felt I could pull inspiration from this recipe. The end result, yum! It turned out way better than I expected. This chicken can be eaten as a main or as an ingredient in a salad or bowl.

Let’s get started:

Ingredients

1 package of chicken breast (I used thin sliced)
1 cup of Greek yogurt
4-5 sprigs of dill chopped
1/2 lemon (squeezed for juice)
1-2 pinches salt
1 pinch black pepper

Directions

1. Combine all ingredients in a shallow Tupperware or ziplock bag. Evenly coat meat with marinade and place in fridge for 30-60 minutes.
2. The chicken can be cooked on a grill or in the oven. If you choose to cook the chicken in the oven, preheat to 375 degrees.
3. Cook chicken to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Cooking time will vary based on the size and thickness of chicken.

This recipe serves 4.

Pro tip: When trimming your chicken breasts, it’s important to try and get your pieces as evenly in size as possible. This will allow for more even cooking times. Additionally, if you do not purchase thin sliced chicken breasts, they can be butterflied to have the same effect. The thinner the meat cuts, the faster the cooking time.

My name is Lauren and I'm the creator of Inspire Me, Gluten Free! I'm here to help YOU get more comfortable in the kitchen! How? Great question; with the art of meal prepping! I'm not talking the boring prep that leaves you wanting more halfway into the week. I plan delicious versions of classic and unique gluten-free meals. Originally, I started meal prepping as a means to manage my budget and my waist line. What I didn't realize was just how much money I was saving monthly, because I was buying less and wasn't wasting money on unused or spoiled food. Choosing fresh ingredients helped me consistently lose 1-2 pounds a week. I had more time in the mornings/evenings, because I wasn't having to cook during the work week. All of these benefits made a world of difference in my life and they can do the same for YOU! Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist or financial advisor.
