- 6 boneless chicken breasts
- 2 lemons juiced
- 2 lemons zested
- 1/4 cup avocado oil or olive oil
- 5 cloves garlic chopped
- 2 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/8 or a dash of red pepper flakes
- For sauce:
- 1/2 cup plain no sugar full-fat yogurt
- 1 English cucumber diced small
- 2 garlic cloves chopped
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp dill
- salt and pepper to taste
Place chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound to an even thickness. Trim off fat.
Make the marinade by whisking together lemon juice through red pepper flakes. Place chicken in a plastic bag and pour over marinade. Massage so all chicken is covered in marinade. Place in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.
Mix together all tzatziki sauce ingredients and set aside.
Grill chicken about 6-8 minutes per side or until a meat thermometer reads 160º. Remove from grill and place under foil to rest.
