  • 1/2 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
  • salt to taste
  • 3 pounds assorted chicken pieces boneless or bone-in (I used boneless, skinless breasts and thighs)


  • Combine all marinade ingredients, except the salt, in a small bowl. Remove skin from chicken pieces, if necessary, and place in a gallon sized zippered plastic storage bag. Spoon the marinade over the chicken. Seal the bag and move the chicken around inside the bag until the marinade is evenly distributed and all the pieces are coated. Place the bag in the refrigerator for  2 to 3 hours.
  • IMPORTANT--> Generously spray your grill with non-stick cooking spray (before turning it on). Preheat grill to medium. Salt the marinated chicken to taste and grill with lid closed, approximately 6 minutes per side (or more, depending on thickness of pieces), or until no longer pink in center and juices run clear.


Total time doesn't include time spent marinating the chicken.
