Greek Yogurt Chicken Recipe – 5 Points +

Greek Yogurt Chicken

Here’s another super easy and delicious Weight Watchers Chicken Recipe that will make weeknight dinner planning a breeze. This Greek Yogurt Chicken is a family hit for sure, as the end result is moist, juicy chicken with a slightly tangy coating of Greek yogurt seasoned with lemon, garlic, oregano, and parsley. I chose to spend the extra Point and use chicken thighs in this recipe instead of chicken breasts, simply because my kids prefer the thighs. But I think it would work just as easily with breasts. Serve with some steamed brown rice or wheat couscous, and a light salad for a very satisfying dinner. Enjoy!
