#MadeWithChobani: Grilled Lemon Chicken with Tzatziki Sauce



To me, grilling reminds me of summer even through here in California it's grilling weather pretty much all the time. If your'e stuck in the snow and cold, bring a little summer into your home with this meal. The lemon and tzatziki sauce made with Chobani Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt bring such a fresh, cool taste that takes you to the shores of the Mediterranean. Not able to grill on the BBQ outside? Get a grill pan and grill over the stove!


Lemon Grilled Chicken
Ingredients:
~1 lb. Chicken Breast
1/4 cup Olive Oil
2 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
1 Lemon,  juiced and zested
1 tbso. Garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp Basil
1 tsp Oregano
Salt & Pepper
1 Red Onion, cut into chunks


Cut chicken breast into skewerable (is that a word? I just made it one!) chunks (or leave whole) and place into a zip-close bag. Whisk marinade ingredients and pour over chicken. Marinade 6-8 hours or overnight. After marinading, put chicken onto skewers with red onion, I added lemon wedges to the skewers for extra flavor. Cook on grill until done. Serve with below tzatziki sauce, rice and pita or flatbread.
