J and I both like the flavours used in Greek cooking. Lemon, garlic, oregano, ouzo...saganaki...baklava.
While cruising Pinterest one night, I found this pin. Not shockingly, I thought it looked delicious. I was equally not shocked when I clicked through and discovered that it was from Budget Bytes. How could it not be good?
With chicken drumsticks on sale at the grocery store, how could we not try this? I present to you now Budget Bytes' Greek Marinated Chicken:
1 c plain yogurtFrom Budget Bytes
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 tsp oregano
1 lemon, zested and squeezed for fresh juice (use 1-2 Tbsp, reserving the rest for another purpose)
Salt and pepper to taste
3-4 lbs bone-in, skin-on chicken pieces
1. In a 1 gallon resealable bag, mix everything except the chicken and mix well.
2. Add chicken pieces, seal the bag, and massage marinade into the chicken pieces. Refrigerate in marinade for 30 minutes to an hour.
3. Preheat oven to 375F, and bake chicken in a 9x13" pan for 45 to 60 minutes, until golden.
