Transform your chicken into a Middle Eastern masterpiece with simple ingredients and a whisk! Once you marinate chicken in yogurt you will never go back.
Add Greek yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, onion powder, cumin, oregano, paprika, parsley, salt, & pepper to a large bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
Add the chicken to the marinade, making sure to submerge all pieces in the mixture. Marinating chicken thighs in yogurt gives them a juicy, melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Place the bowl in the fridge for 4-12 hours allowing the chicken to mingle with all the yogurt flavors.
Remove the chicken from the marinade, place it on a plate, and scrape off the excess marinade. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
Preheat the grill and brush grates generously with vegetable oil. Place the marinated chicken thighs on the grill.
Grill them for 8-10 minutes, turning them once. Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate, cover with foil, and let it rest for 5-7 minutes. Enjoy with your grill mate!
