While the chicken is marinating, the veggies are partially roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper. Then, the veggies are topped with the chicken pieces and the marinade, and everything is roasted to perfection—nothing to it.

Michele, mix the Greek yogurt with 2 teaspoons of either tapioca or arrowroot starch. thank you


I’ve made this recipe twice. Family enjoys it but the sauce keeps splitting (don’t know the technical term but it looks rather curdled and not very pretty). Any ideas on why it’s happened twice for me? It’s an easy and good recipe so I could get it to look nicer, it’d be a 5-star for me!! Thanks!
