Now you will need to add in the chicken. Making sure to toss to coat.

Once you have finished with that.. you will need to cover with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate for 1 hour.

I have found that any more than 1 hour is not necessary.  The flavors penetrate the meat and it tastes amazing!

Okay. Now that your marinade is all done…

Let’s get started heating a large skillet over medium heat.

Cook the chicken breast for 4 minutes on each side or until an internal meat thermometer reads 165F.

If you find that a lot of liquid is related from the meat into the pan, simply drain it off so your greek chicken will brown nicely.

FOR THE TZATZIKI:

Our ingredients are minced mini seedless cucumbers, salt, greek yogurt, avocado oil, lemon juice, and garlic.

If you cannot find mini seedless cucumbers, you can use 1/3  of a regular cucumber.
