Ideal for grilling; however, it can be baked in the oven. Serve with a cucumber salad and rice. Prep time does not include marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the yogurt, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, curry, cayenne, and salt in a large ziplock bag until well combined. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Marinate the chicken at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
  2. Remove the chicken from the marinade (discard the marinade) and grill over medium-high heat , about 12 minutes per side, until cooked thoroughly. Serve immediately.

Nancy, Russ and I both enjoyed this VERY much thank you. I used bone-in skinless thigh fillets (personal preferance) which I marinated for the full 24 hours, then baked in the oven for 40 minutes. They were delicious, moist and tender and went beautifully with our raita and Recipe #181101 A simple but really great meal after a long day driving.

Great chicken dish. So easy and quick to put together. THe ziploc bag makes for a quick cleanup and easy to make sure the chicken has been fully coated in the marinade. I used large breast fillet pieces, so cut them in half through. Served with some basmati rice and a shredded carrot and cucumber salad. All my family enjoyed this winner dish. Photo also posted.

I marinated all day. This was very tasty and not too spicy.
