  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt

Season both the outside and inside of the chicken.

  4. Meanwhile, prepare the salad dressing by combining 2 tbsp Greek yogurt, 2 tbsp Japanese mayonnaise, and 1 tbsp olive oil. Place in the fridge.
  5. To serve, toss the vegetables (4 oz lettuce, 4 oz cucumber, and 0.5 oz radish) with the dressing. Pull the chicken out, plate it, sprinkle with parsley, and enjoy with the side salad.
