Very delicious and easy to prepare...I served with naan bread and some steamed basmati rice. The garam masala is a little sweet, making the chicken a little too "cinnaminy" and it needed some salt, too. That may cut down on the sweetness a bit. I used 2 pounds skinless, bone-in drumsticks and thighs like the Indian restaurants. I will be making this again!

This was good, I did add a few more spices - cumin, curry, and a small amount of tumeric. The mango chutney on the side complimented it very well(see photo). We cooked the chicken on skewers on the BBQ, I also marinated some cubed sweet potatos too and grilled them as well, the yogurt marinade didn't soak into the sweet potatoes as much but they still had an Indian flavor. I'll make this again for sure!

For being just about the simplest recipe on the site, this is quite tasty! I've made it twice and haven't changed a thing. Simple and yummy.
