Grilled Chicken Breasts (thanks Amal!)

Hi Rasha,

This is a quick and easy dish, and good for dieting. My version of grilled chicken breast.
  1. Take chicken breast fillets pieces and marinade in lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, greek yougart, salt and black pepper. You can substitue lemon zest for parsely if you want.
  2. Grill in oven for around 20 min. Half way through cooking, drain out the water that comes from the marinade, leaving a little to stay moist and leave to cook for another 5-10 min.
  3. Serve with rice or bread and salad.
