This recipe was a runner up in the 1979 Gilroy Garlic Festival cookout submitted by Helen Headlee. It is wonderful


  1. In your blender or food processor combine a small amount of the yogurt, all the garlic and ginger, puree until smooth.
  2. stir in the remaining yogurt, add spices and mix well.
  3. Pour over your chicken and marinate overnight in the fridge, turn frequently to keep all sides in the matinade BBQ over medium heat 4-6" from heat or broil appr 25 minutes or until cooked depending on the size of the chicken pieces.

This made for some tasty grilled chicken! I used boneless skinless breasts and skewered them, otherwise made as directed. These had wonderful flavor and the chicken was very moist. Thanks for posting this recipe!

I am surprised this has not been reviewed yet!!?? I thought it was an excellent little dish!!! I liked the simplicity of it and the fact it is prepared the day before. I did think the yogurt could have been cut back a little bit though. I did not change anything and we really enjoyed it. Thanks for the post Bergy
