  • 8 chicken thighs skin removed
  • ½ c . olive oil
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 T lemon juice
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 t . dried oregano
  • 1 t . cumin
  • 1 t . kosher salt
  • ½ t . pepper


  • Place chicken thighs in a zip top bag, set aside. In a small bowl mix together remaining ingredients and then pour over chicken. Marinate in the fridge for two hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Heat a heavy skillet over medium high heat. Shaking off excess marinade, place half of the chicken thighs into the pan and brown for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove chicken to a foil lined baking sheet. Continue with the remaining half of thighs. Bake the chicken until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees. Let rest a couple of minutes, then serve.
