PK’s NoRecipe Yoghurt Marinaded Butterflied Chicken

It is really easy to dry a chicken out when cooking on the barbecue. This yoghurt and herb marinaded butterflied chicken won’t let that happen though 🙂

You can of course use chicken pieces for the same great result and if you don’t have any yoghurt handy you can use this recipe instead – PK’s NoRecipe Greek Butterflied Chicken Roast.

Simply take a cup of plain Greek yoghurt and add to a mixing bowl along with:

  • minced garlic to taste
  • freshly cracked black peppercorns to taste
  • a slug of olive oil
  • a splash or more of lemon juice
  • a sprinkle of Italian herbs  (I used a Masterfoods blend)
  • a good handful of chopped parsley or celery leaves

Cover the chicken in the yoghurt marinade, getting into all the nooks and crannies. Let it sit in the fridge for half a day or so.

Tip – I take the bird out of the fridge for 10 minutes prior to barbecuing to take the chill off. You have to be careful with chicken but I also don’t want to be putting a very cold piece of meat on a hot barbecue.
