I used chicken tenders and baked mine at 350° for about 20 minutes. I served with mashed potatoes. Thank you for the recipe.
Made this for dinner and got raves. Thanks for sharing. Family doesn't like yogurt and when they saw me preparing it said yuke, Told them if they didn't like it there was always frozen pizza, then I said yuke. Pizza's still in the freezer:)
Lovely and really tasty chicken. I loved the colour of the marinade, too. I added only half the amount of lemon juice and fresh mint leaves, because, I didn't want it too sour in taste. Otherwise, it's excellent and I used chicken thighs to make it. I omitted curry powder. Another thing I liked is that you've mentioned the exact cooking time i.e. 20 minutes, which I followed and used as 10 mins. for preheat and 10 mins. for grilling. I'm new with the oven, hence, I really do appreciate your mentioning te perfect time for the perfect Captain chicken. Yummy!
