This past weekend was Memorial Day weekend. I’ve always thought of Memorial Day weekend as the start of summer. Summer to me means grilling out and campfires. I had neither of these experiences this weekend. I was really bummed.
I thought back to past Memorial Days, where my family would get up early in the morning to watch my dad march in the Memorial Day ceremony. After the ceremony my dad would work on finishing up planting the garden. We’d always end the day grilling dinner.
I wanted to grill out on Memorial Day, but seeing that it was suppose to rain all day I decided to marinade some chicken and cook it in the oven. I figured it’d be as close to a grill as I would get this weekend.
In a large bowl I put one cup of plain Greek yogurt.
Next I put the sour cream into the bowl.
To the sour cream I added the dill.
I always like to mix my ingredients every once and awhile, just because I love seeing the recipe come together.
To the mixture of yogurt, sour cream and dill, I added the packets of ranch dressing mix.
After I mixed the ranch dressing powder into the mixture I added the garlic.
Next, dice up the chicken. You’ll want to make sure to keep them somewhat of an even size so they cook evenly.
Add the chicken to the marinade.
Mix the chicken and marinade together.
Next, put the chicken mixture in a plastic bag and put it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours or over night.
After the chicken is done marinating, you’ll want to grease the baking sheet. I used olive oil this time as I was out of the spray kind. I have done it both ways and either is fine. Place the chicken on baking sheet.
Cook the chicken at 350* for 25 minutes.
I hope that you all enjoy!
