  • 2 lbs boneless chicken thighs
  • ½ Greek Yogurt whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons thyme fresh
  • 2 tablespoons oregano fresh
  • 3 garlic cloves grated
  • 1 zest of a lemon
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon salt


  1. In a gallon size resealable bag combine all ingredients except the chicken. Mix well until well combined.
  2. Add the chicken to the bag with the marinade, press out the excess air from the bag, and seal tightly.
  3. Massage in the marinade around the chicken, place the bag on a bowl and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Take out the chicken out of the refrigerator.
  5. Preheat the grill to medium heat, then place the chicken on the grill. While cooking, turn the chicken to create grill marks. Flip over the chicken and continue cooking until desired doneness. The safe cooked temperature for chicken is 165 °F (with an instant-read thermometer), but I like to keep it a little longer.
  6. Transfer chicken to a dish and cover with aluminum foil. And Voila! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You can serve it with a salad, veggie, rice, pita bread, make tacos, wrap, make gyros, etc. Endless possibilities. 

I purchase the plain whole Milk Greek yogurt from Trader Joe's.
