Yogurt is one of those things that most people wouldn’t think of eating other than for breakfast. Well, with all the news about the Olympics, which are starting in a few weeks, I’ve been reading all of these articles about these athletes and what they use to stay strong and keep healthy. Athletes actually eat a lot of yogurt because it’s filled with power, protein and probiotics! So with all this talk about yogurt… It inspired me to make a recipe I haven’t had in a long time!
I’ve always loved yogurt… but Greek Yogurt is fairly new to me…. Probably in the last year or so, it’s really become one of my new favorite staples in our house.
I’ve been making this recipe for Yogurt Garlic Chicken for years and just recently started using Greek Yogurt to make my chicken recipe and let me just say WOW! Kids are loving it. Husband is loving it. I’m loving it!
Greek yogurt (specifically Chobani, which is the one I’ve become addicted to) is a little bit thicker than regular yogurt, has a bit more tang and a delish flavor! It’s also gluten free, Kosher certified, made with milk free of rBST and provide two times more protein than regular yogurt, five live and active cultures, and three strains of probiotics.
No wonder Olympic Athletes are eating this great stuff… and they’re onto Chobani too, as it’s an Olympic Sponsor… Hence the article that inspired me so much! If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for my family!
