Give Peas A Chance Greek Chicken

This is one of my versions of Greek Chicken, I warn you though I am not Greek. Far from it. But these are the flavors I think of when I think of Greek foods. I could be totally off. But this chicken, along with the Greek Chicken Kabobs linked below are both so good. Wrapped in soft, fluffy Perfect Pita bread, with rice, on top of a salad. The citrus and yogurt tenderize the meat, it comes out moist and flavorful. You'll put this on your menu regularly, we have it on ours! You can also use this marinade on a whole roaster chicken. Just rub the marinade on the inside cavity, under the skin of the chicken, and over the skin before roasting.
