1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt

Ingredients for Chicken:
Cooking spray

1. To prepare sauce, drain yogurt in a strainer lined with cheesecloth 2 hours or overnight. Transfer to a bowl and stir in garlic, olive oil, dill, lemon juice and salt.

2. To prepare chicken, preheat oven to 450F. Coat a large wire rack and shallow baking sheet with cooking spray.

3. Combine basil, mint, dill, oil, garlic, and lemon rind and juice in a large bowl. Add chicken; toss well to coat. Arrange chicken in a single layer on baking sheet; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

4. Roast chicken breasts 30 to 40 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 170F. Roast thighs 35 to 45 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh registers 180F. Serve immediately or at room temperature, accompanied by lemon wedges and Yogurt Dill Sauce.
