Notes

I must say, marinating the chicken is key. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt, and pepper, and let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes. You can also opt for using Greek seasoning for an extra punch. Choose a high-quality Greek yogurt for the sauce to ensure a creamy texture. Don’t be afraid to get creative by adding other ingredients such as feta cheese or roasted red peppers.
