Healthy Marinated Chicken Recipe

Healthy Recipes
Another Great Healthy Living Recipe

A Great - Healthy - Marinated Chicken Recipe We designed this marinated chicken recipe specially for all of us who want to lose weight using the principles of the Mediterranean diet.

We have done away with the skin - a great source of saturated animal fat - and yet the meat remains juicy and succulent, protected by the great yogurt, herb and Mediterranean spice marinade.

Eat well - feel full and satisfied and lose those excess pounds without undue effort.

Creamy Mediterranean Sauce

Marinated Chicken Recipe Method

  1. This is really easy! In a mixing bowl combine the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, red pepper spices and food colouring, if you are using it. 
  2. Season with salt and black pepper
  3. Add the chicken legs and wings and mix them well into the marinade.
  4. Cover and leave for at least 2 hours....longer if possible.
  5. Now arrange the chicken on a rack over a roasting tray of water (see photo).
  6. Roast at 180ºC/350ºF and after 20 minutes turn the chicken over and roast for a further 20 minutes.
  7. Whilst they are cooking you can top up the water in the tray as it evaporates.
  8. To make the sauce: just pour the marinade that is left into a small saucepan and bring it to the boil over a medium heat.
  9. If you prefer it a little creamier just add an extra teaspoon of Greek yogurt before you serve it with the chicken.
