The marinade was quick to put together. I added about 1/2 tsp agave syrup just to counter the spiciness of the other flavors. I don't have an outdoor grill so I cooked it on my countertop electric grill. The yogurt helped to tenderize the chicken and it had a good, moist texture. The seasonings were good but there wasn't enough of them. I will make this again but next time increase each of the spices.
