Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken Breasts

Raven Higheagle


The beauty of this recipe is that you can throw it in the marinade when you get home from work, and by the time you’ve changed and gotten your side dishes prepped, it’s ready to toss on the grill. Or you can put your thawed OR even still frozen chicken breasts into a plastic bag with the Greek yogurt mixture in the morning, and pull them out right when it’s time to cook dinner. Also, I use thinly sliced chicken breasts (or you could pound the chicken flat with a mallet) so that they cook up in minutes.
