Lemon oregano chicken

Lemon oregano chicken

Introduction

This makes a good lunch or light dinner with a Mediterranean flair. I came up with this recipe as a way to use up leftover roast chicken--which is a great option instead of the fresh chicken breast!

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1 Chicken breast, cut into cubes
    Juice and zest of 1 lemon
    2 tsp dried oregano OR 1 tbsp fresh oregano
    1 1/2 cup brown rice, prepared
    1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt (Greek preferred)
    1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Makes 2 servings

Marinate cubed chicken breast pieces in lemon juice, zest, oregano, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Let sit at least 15 minutes and up to 2 hours.

Meanwhile, mix yogurt, garlic, and a pinch of salt. Can be made several days in advance for a more intense sauce.

Spray a sauce pan with olive oil cooking spray. Heat over medium heat and add chicken. Saute until cooked through and browned, about 8-10 minutes.

Serve chicken over rice with garlic-yogurt sauce on the side or on top.

  • The chicken was very tasty. I kept it in serving size pieces and served it without the sauce or rice but with the oven roasted mixed vegetables recipe that I like a lot. This is a time saver for sure! - 1/14/09
