This is one of our favorite marinades for grilled chicken. My Ranch Yogurt Marinade has only 5 ingredients (plus salt, but if you've bought a 5 ingredient cookbook you'll see that they never count salt in the 5) and gives the chicken a ton of flavor.
I buy fresh chicken tenders and freeze them in a gallon ziploc bag with this marinade. When we are ready to have them for dinner I defrost and grill. They are moist, tender, and flavorful.
I love having a few easy meals in the freezer for nights I don't feel like cooking. And on days I've spent hours in the kitchen developing a new recipe I'm generally kitchened out when dinner rolls around. My freezer staples are cooked taco meat, cooked meatballs, and raw chicken tenders frozen in a marinade. I can get any of those from freezer to table in 30 minutes.
