"Moist, luscious, and delicious. Just the right blend of spices make this chicken dish one of my most-requested. Great hot or cold. If using thighs with skin, you can put over direct medium heat for the last few minutes to crisp skin."

  • Ready In

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together yogurt, salt, pepper, cloves, and ginger. Mix in garlic, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and coriander. Set aside.
  2. Rinse chicken under cold water, and pat dry with paper towels. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour yogurt mixture over chicken, press air out of bag, and seal. Turn the bag over several times to distribute marinade. Place bag in a bowl, and refrigerate 8 hours, or overnight, turning bag occasionally.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for direct medium heat.
  4. Remove chicken from bag, and discard marinade. With paper towels, wipe off excess marinade. Spray chicken pieces with olive oil spray.
  5. Place chicken on the grill, and cook about 2 minutes. Turn, and cook 2 minutes more. Then arrange the chicken to receive indirect heat, and cook approximately 35 to 40 minutes, to an internal temperature of 180 degrees F.

This chicken was really wonderful; the smell alone makes it worth cooking. I cooked mine in the oven on a cake rack set over a cookie sheet, 20 minutes each side at 350. I tried making it again...

I have been pleasantly surprised at how good this recipe has been. I use boneless, skinless thighs and bake for 25-30 min. at 350 degrees in the oven, uncovered. Perfectly moist and juicy. Do...

The aroma of this dish cooking makes your mouth water! I used boneless/skinless thighs, as my other half can't stand bone-in anything. I also used fat free yogurt and sea salt rather than kosh...
