This is a marinade that cold be used for kabobs but I like it just as much on a full chicken breast or breast cut into large strips for a salad. Or serve with grilled veggies. The garlic and lemon highlight this Mediterranean-style dish perfectly.


  • 1 lb chicken
  • 1 6-8 ounce cup of plain yogurt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano or 1 tbsp fresh oregano
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary or 1 tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried sage, or 1 tbsp fresh sage
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced (optional, but I LOVE garlic!!!!)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced and zested

In a gallon sized plastic bag or a container with a lid, pour in all ingredients but the chicken.

Mix the marinade,  mashing the feta cheese while blending.

Looking good and smelling better!!!

Drop in your chicken and completely coat in the marinade.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. You can marinade overnight though.

Grill grill chicken until the juices run clear or the internal temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees (or however you normally cook it).  My favorite way to serve is over a bed of spinach with grilled onion and a sprinkle of feta cheese.

What’s yours???
