      This recipe is tasty and super easy to make. I served Lori Bailey's Cucumber and Garbonzo Bean salad with it.

      I love the combination of spices in this recipe and how the yogurt tenderizes the chicken. Like some of the other reviewers I didn't make the salad and I baked the chicken. I also omitted the oil to lower the fat content. This was super baked in the oven but I know it will be even better on the grill in the summer. Thanks for a winner, ms_bold!

      Yum. Husband has requested I make this again and I'm not disagreeing. Relying on previous ratings, I didn't make the salad and just stirred a bit of dried mint into the yoghurt sauce. I think I'd make it again in the same way. The sauce is cooling an otherwise nicely spicy recipe and makes a nice texture/flavour contrast.
