Lemon Yogurt Chicken is a recipe I got a long time ago from my brother. I don’t remember it exactly, but it roughly involved baking chicken in plain yogurt, with lemon slices and topping it with grated parmesan. Good stuff!
I got a pack of chicken drumsticks and was looking for some recipes for marinade. I came across a few recipes for a marinade with yogurt, lime, and mint. I thought I had everything for this. Sadly, the lime was actually a lemon and the mint was all pulled up when my Faithful Assistant weeded the garden. Sigh. Time to improvise! Not a problem at all.
Lemon Yogurt Drumsticks
10 chicken drumsticks
6 tbsp plain yogurt
Juice of one lemon
2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
Salt and pepper
1. Combine the yogurt, lemon, garlic, salt and pepper in a ziplock bag or other container large enough to hold the chicken. Mush it up!
2. Add the chicken and mush some more until all the chicken is coated. Add more yogurt if you need to.
3. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
Four thumbs up! We grilled some veggies to go with the chicken. There were enough leftovers for four lunches! That makes everyone so happy!
It’s the second to last weekend before school starts here. The official summer mourning period has begun. I will do my best to fill these last days with good food and good memories for my boys.
