Grilled Yogurt Lemon Chicken

READY IN: 3hrs
Recipe by Maryland Jim

Found this is a Southern Living Cookbook. The key to this recipe is the longer you marinade the chicken the better the flavor.

I love the combination of spices and how tender the chicken came out. I made this on my indoor grill but can't wait try try it on the charcoal one. Thank you.
