Who is amped for all of the savory goodness lately on the blog?!

I 10000% am. And that is for a few reasons..

Reason #1 – the more savory food I make, the less I have to think about what to make us for dinner that day ha! I love when I test something for the blog and we get to have it for dinner for a couple nights. It makes things oh so much easier and one of the major perks of recipe testing as your job.

Reason #2 – now you guys can believe me when I say I don’t eat cookies for every meal! I eat them everyday, that is for sure. But I do get in my 3 meals a deal in addition. And believe it or not, even some veggies 😉

This chicken recipe though is going to be one of your new dinner time favorites. I just know it. It is such an easy way to spice up your weeknight dinner routine and makes chicken taste even better. Because we all know that it is really easy to get bored with the same old chicken recipe. And this is one that you can make some extra so you can leftover for the week. And it is one that you can either cook on a skillet or even if you have a grill. But if you do indeed have a grill, invite us over. We have serious FOMO!

I hope you guys love this recipe as much as we do over here. I cannot wait to hear what you think!

  2. Add the chicken to a baking dish or a large ziplock bag and add in the yogurt mixture and evenly coat the chicken

  4. When ready to cook, warm a large skillet or grill pan with a little oil over high heat
  5. Turn heat down to medium and add chicken to skillet
