Mild Greek Yoghurt Chicken Marinade

  • Author: The 4 Blades
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 12


These wraps taste great and the flavour is quite mild, which makes them perfect for the whole family. What we love about these is that there’s no real need to marinate for hours and hours – just 20-30 minutes will make them taste incredible!

This recipe was featured along with two other chicken marinade recipes in Episode 129 of The 4 Blades podcast.
