Very very tasty. I didn't have any sumac but decided to add a bit of spice and added 4 tbsp hot salsa and a 1/2 tsp sugar.I find that the sugar takes the sharp bite out of the yogurt. I only made a half recipe (4 thighs) The flavor was perfect. I started by browning the chicken under the broiler then added the yogurt mixture and baked uncovered for 35 minutes.The chicken stays moist & the yogurt forms a nice crust on the outside Very enjoyable thank-you Tish

I made this for the Summer 2006 Pick A Chef Contest. This recipe was good. The chicken was good. I was not a big fan of the yogurt though. But this is my own personal opinion and taste. Since I am a bit on the picky side of an eater I would still encourage people to try this recipe and not to let my review affect them. I believe another person would truly love this recipe.
