Made this recipe for dinner last night and it was fabulous. I did make a couple small changes as an extra tablespoon of yogurt and mint and I also used 2 shallots and 2 cloves of garlic. Marinated the chicken for around 6 hours and then added whole baby bella mushrooms and sliced green pepper before I put it on the skewers. I made sure the vegetables were covered with the marinade as well. Chicken was tender and delicious and we enjoyed this very much and will be making it again.
I think this has great possibilities but would probably tinker a bit more. Even the tiny amount of safron specified here seemed to overwhelm the other flavors in the marinade. I made a half batch and would suggest no more than 2 or 3 threads for a full one - this coming from someone who really like saffron. The combination of mint, shallots and saffron was quite good though a bit off balance for me. Glad to have come across this recipe and hope that others will give it a try. Thank you so much for sharing.
