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.

Instructions
  1. Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a air-tight container or Ziploc bag. Add the steak strips into the marinade, seal and allow marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, wash and trim the ends of the zucchini. Using a spiralizer, make the zucchini noodles, then set aside.
  3. Bring the steak to room temperature and heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat - reserve the juices of the marinade for later. Add the steak strips in one layer and season with salt and pepper. Cook for one minute without stirring.
  4. Add minced garlic, then stir the steak for another minute or two to cook the other side. Remove the steak from the skillet and set aside to a plate.
  5. In the same skillet, add butter, lemon juice and zest, rep pepper flakes, chicken broth and remaining marinade juices. Bring to a summer and allow to reduce for 2-3 minutes, stirring regularly.
  6. Stir in the fresh parsley, then add the zucchini noodles and toss for 1 one minute to warm it. Add the steak strips back to the pan and stir for another minute. Serve immediately.
