GREEK MARINATED CHICKEN WITH TZATZIKI SAUCE
My heart is heavy today from the recent devastating events that occurred in Beirut, Lebanon. While I do not live in Lebanon, my family is from there. My great-grandparents came from Lebanon many years ago and I have always felt a deep connection to it. Lebanon has endured so much over the years and this just makes it all so much worse.
It feels strange to share a recipe when my heart is heavy but I also feel like it is a way of honoring my ancestors and the people of Lebanon, by sharing with others around the world the delicious food that brings Lebanese around the table together. The Lebanese are a resilient, loving people who live life to the fullest. Food has always been the center of our family get togethers and I think it has a way of brining comfort to us all.
If you are looking for a way to give back to Lebanon and help the people there consider donating to the Lebanese Red Cross. You can do that by going to this page here.
As you know I love Mediterranean flavors. A lot of the recipes I share include ingredients that are commonly found in Mediterranean countries. Today’s Greek Marinated Chicken with Tzatziki Sauce is a light, healthy meal that your family will love. My favorite part about this meal is the tangy Dill Greek Yogurt Sauce that you put on top of your chicken. It adds such a nice pairing to the chicken alongside an Easy Lebanese Salad.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THIS GRILLED CHICKEN?
CHICKEN: I used chicken thighs because they are more tender and I really enjoy the darker meat. You can easily use chicken breasts, chicken tenders or whatever you like.
MARINADE: The marinade for this Mediterranean chicken is flavorful and uses warm spices including paprika, cumin, thyme and oregano along with olive oil and lemon juice. I love this easy marinade!
DILL GREEK YOGURT SAUCE: My favorite part about this recipe is the Dill Greek Yogurt Sauce. It adds a nice tangy flavor to the dish. I like to use plain Greek Yogurt but if you don’t want to use Greek Yogurt you can use plain yogurt.
