Ninja Foodi Grill Greek Chicken with Tzatziki sauce
If you have an indoor grill you will love this simple Ninja Foodi Grill Chicken Recipe. Or you can head outdoors and grill your chicken if you prefer.
Can I Double This Greek Chicken Recipe
You are welcome to make as much or as little of this chicken as you would like. With the Foodi Grill you will have to just batch cook your chicken.
It only holds so much and you do not want to layer your chicken or you will get an uneven cook.
To keep your chicken warm as you cook the rest you can cover in foil on a plate or wrap up and place in a 200 degree oven to warm that way as well.
Boneless or Bone-In Greek Chicken
Can you use bone-in chicken for this recipe? The answer is yes. You are more than welcome to use boneless or bone-in.
Make sure to use a meat thermometer to ensure the chicken reaches 165 internal temperature. If you use bone-in make sure that you do not put the thermometer on a bone. It will give you a false reading of temp.
How to Make Tzatziki Sauce
Tzatziki sauce is the perfect compliment to a Greek chicken. You will whip up a refreshing and light creamy sauce to store in the fridge and marinade.
It is best to make this creamy Tzatziki sauce early in the day so it has time to blend the flavors.
I share the full steps and instructions on how to make homemade Tzatziki sauce in the Pringle recipe card below. Making your own sauce will really transform this chicken recipe.
How to Serve Up
- With pitas on side
- Slice and create homemade gyros
- Serve with bed of rice
- Zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice
- Cucumber and Onions
The ways to serve up this chicken is endless. We love it so many different ways. But feel free to play around and see what variation of items fits your liking the best.
How to Store Leftovers
Chicken can store in the fridge for up to three days. Just make sure you place in proper container and store at the right temperature.
Eat leftover chicken cold or warm it up in the microwave. I have loved slicing the chicken up and placing it on a salad mix leftover. Use the sauce in replace of dressing for a satisfying lunch or dinner!
