  1. In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, half a tablespoon of oil, the garlic and herbs. Add the chicken fillets, cover and leave to marinate for a couple of hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat the grill. Place the chicken and its marinade into a foil-lined grill pan. Cook for about 8 minutes until cooked through, with no pink showing, then wrap in the foil and leave to rest for a couple of minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes until tender, drain, smash roughly with a fork and stir in the remaining olive oil and the zest. Season to taste and garnish with some parsley leaves.
  4. Serve the chicken with the potatoes and some salad.
