Spicy Yoghurt Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by Sueie

Super moist chicken with a bit of a bite, my guests always enjoy this. I serve this with Jasmine rice and other vegetables. A do ahead recipe that can be marinated during the day and then popped in oven in the evening.

No problem with this recipe. Good taste and do ahead to boot!! I added extra spices and used the marinade (I added some white wine to thin it a bit) as a sauce for the chicken and rice. Thanks Sueie.
