Recipe by NeilsGirl

Spicy but cool with the yogurt. Make more or less spicy with the amount of cayenne used. Serve with brown rice or couscous. 7 weight watcher points per service (2 thighs, 1/4 rice or couscous, 1/4 yogurt sauce).

I made this exactly as the recipe called for ingredient wise except I baked my chicken thighs for 30 minutes and used 1/2 the spices on the chicken and the other 1/2 in the yogurt sauce. My only change would be to decrease the basil a bit. Other than that, a tasty and healthy recipe:) Thanks!
