Ingredients

Chicken Marinade:

  • 1 garlic clove, grated/minced
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh herb (such as dill, thyme, oregano, rosemary, etc)
  • 2 tbs olive oil

Sour Cream Dip

  • 1 garlic clove, grated/minced

  • 8 ounces sour cream

Instructions

  5. Reserve a quarter cup of the dip, and add to the chicken thighs that were set aside.
