Servings and Ingredients
|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 black pepper|
|2 medium zucchini|

- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Thinly slice chicken breasts into strips and serve over vegetables with lemon wedges.
