Baked Chicken In Greek Yogurt Marinade

I had leftover Greek Yogurt from the fruit dip that I made during Memorial Day weekend which I needed to use so I decided to make a marinade out of it with chicken. I adapted the recipe from Curries with Bumbi on YouTube. The chicken pieces were baked in with the marinade giving it a creamy and delicious sauce or gravy. I served this dish both ways. With garlic bread and veggies on the side on the first night then I paired the leftovers with rice the next day for lunch. Both ideas are great!

  • 1/2 onion (sliced thinly)


  • Place plain Greek Yogurt in a marinating bowl(with cover),

  • Cover the bowl and let this marinate for 4-5 hours or overnight.
  • Here it is after marinating for 5 hours. Take it out of the fridge and let it sit room temperature for 15 minutes before baking. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  • Place the marinated chicken and the marinade in a baking pan.
  • Bake it in the preheated oven for 50 minutes to an hour.
