Adapted from Ellie Krieger's recipe. Chicken and grapes are just meant to be together! This combination is just wonderful with the cumin and coriander spices. It is equally delicious with lemon or orange. The savory garlic and sweet grapes make it irresistible. I serve it with a quick yogurt sauce (greek or plain yogurt, garlic, fresh lemon or orange juice). Ellie's couscous and a green vegetable are great side dishes. This is so fast and easy to prepare. Substitutions work well also.

This was awesome, super easy, flavorful marinade. I made a yogurt dipping sauce to go with, this recipe will definitely go into my regular rotation!
My 3 yr. old loved not only making this with me but eating it too. The spice is nice and a mixture I will use later for a more adult meal. Very kid friendly.
