My family isn't very fond of India's curries/spices/heat for their cuisine, but I wanted to try something outside of our normal and went with this recipe. My DH, 20 yo DS and myself all really enjoyed this chicken. It was very flavorful and a nice citrus taste along with the spices, not spicy at all. When I bought ingredients for the recipe I bought a tub (15 oz) of Greek yogurt, planning to make 1/2 of the recipe, but when looking at the recipe for the spices and juice, it didn't seem right. I went and used the measurement converter and for 85 grams of yogurt is 3 ounces of yogurt, not 30 oz. I served this along side of a recipe#482283, greens beans and garlic bread for a fantastic meal that will be a repeat in our home. Thanks so much for sharing such a great recipe. Made for ZWT8.
