Greek Grilled Chicken and Lamb Chops

August 13, 2011

This yogurt-marinated grilled chicken and lamb is full of flavor from some homemade Greek seasoning mix. It’s great fresh off the grill or the next day in sandwiches with some of the grilled flatbread and roasted vegetable dip!

You will need:

  • 1 T dried oregano
  • 2 t dried mint
  • 2 t dried thyme
  • 1 t dried basil
  • 1 t dried marjoram
  • 2 t dried minced onion
  • 1 T dried minced garlic
  • 2 t dried lemon peel
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t nutmeg
  • 2 t salt
  • 2 t pepper
  • 16 oz Greek yogurt
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 1 lb lamb chops
  • 1 lb chicken tenders

Then you will…

  1. Mix together all of the seasonings with the Greek yogurt and olive oil.
  2. In a large ziplock bag, combine half of the marinade with the lamb chops.
  3. In a second large ziplock bag, combine the remaining marinade with the chicken.
  4. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  5. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
  6. Grill chicken until cooked through about 4-5 minutes per side.
  7. Grill lamb until cooked to liking. 4-5 minutes on each side should bring the internal temp close to 155 for medium lamb chops. Remember to let them sit for about 10 minutes before serving.
  8. Meanwhile, grill lemon halves, with the cut side down, until charred, about 5 minutes.
  9. Serve chicken and lamb with the grilled lemons.
