Servings and Ingredients

Serves 4
1 lbs. thin-cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 1/2-inch thick boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 c. Hy-Vee plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp. lemon zest
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
4 clove(s) garlic, minced
3 tbsp. Hy-Vee Select olive oil, divided
3 tbsp. finely chopped fresh Italian parsley, divided
2 tsp. Hy-Vee paprika
1 tsp. Hy-Vee dried oregano
½ tsp. Hy-Vee salt
½ tsp. Hy-Vee black pepper
2 medium zucchini
2 medium summer squash
2 large carrots
Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Place chicken breasts in a large resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon parsley, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper. Add marinade to chicken in bag; seal bag. Turn to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, use a spiralizer, mandoline or julienne peeler to slice zucchini, summer squash and carrots lengthwise into long thin noodle-like strands. Transfer vegetables to a large microwave-safe bowl; cover with wet paper towels and set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove chicken from marinade; discard bag and marinade. Place chicken in a greased 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Roast, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes or internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  4. Meanwhile, microwave vegetables, covered, on HIGH for 2 to 3 minutes or until tender, stirring halfway through. Stir remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons parsley into vegetables.
  5. Thinly slice chicken breasts into strips and serve over vegetables with lemon wedges.
