Instructions
  1. Combine the yogurt, olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, parsley, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper in a bowl. Use a fine holed cheese grater or a zester to scrape the thin layer of yellow zest from the lemon skin into the bowl. Also add the juice from half of the lemon (about 1-2 Tbsp). Stir until the ingredients are well combined. Stir parsley into the marinade.

  2. Add a little lemon zest into the bowl. You can use a fine cheese grater to zest a lemon.

  3. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze into the bowl (about 1-2 Tbsp).

  4. Stir until the ingredients are well combined.

  5. Add the chicken pieces and marinade to a gallon sized zip top bag. Remove as much air as possible and close tight.

  6. Massage the bag to mix the contents and make sure the chicken is well coated. Refrigerate the bag for 30 minutes.

  7. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  8. Place the chicken pieces in a large casserole dish (9x13). Squeeze the extra marinade from the gallon bag and place on top of the chicken.

  9. Bake the chicken in the preheated 375 degree oven for 45-60 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
