  1. Mix yogurt, garlic, oregano, and black pepper together in a bowl. Add chicken to yogurt marinade, coating all sides. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove chicken from yogurt marinade; place on preheated grill. Cook for 6 minutes; flip and sprinkle with feta cheese. Cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 4 to 6 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Garnish with fresh parsley.

Followed recipe exactly. It was just OK. We thought it lacked flavor. It tasted like a garlic chicken. I think it needs stronger spices than garlic and oregano. To go with the yogurt I think some hot chile paste might add some color and heat. It has potential, but with so many good chicken recipes on this site I don't think I will make this again without making major changes

Very good! I used non-fat Greek yogurt. I marinated it overnight and cooked it on my GF grill since it was raining out. Next time, we will grill it. I can't wait for the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe.

The chicken was very moist.. cooked it on my GF grill so I topped with feta after cooking. Needed more seasoning for my tastes

Very good! I added lemon juice and salt and pepper to the marinade and had it in the fridge for 24 hours. The feta was a nice touch! Used as the base for pita sandwiches with lettuce, tomato, onion and greek yogurt cucumber sauce from this site, nice weeknight meal!

Delicious! Not only did my husband, 1& 6 year old love it, but more importantly my chicken finger loving 4 years old ate it, which is a miracle! Thank you for an easy and yummy dinner!

Love this recipe. It was from Bon Appietit magazine back in the early 90's.
