The marinade was much too salty for me (and I love salt). Otherwise, it was very good.

This recipe was AMAZING and I'm making it for dinner for the 2nd time tonight! I skipped the whole apple/yogurt side dish and just used the yogurt to marinate the chicken. (I marinated in the fridge overnight). I cubed my chicken and put it on skewers and bbq'd it on the outside grill. Served along with long grain rice, grilled vegetables and Naan. So SOOOOO Yummy and one of my favorite recipes. Thanks!

This is ABSOLUTELY GREAT! Recipe is first rate! LOVED apple/yogurt combination! STILL am in state of elation! Used chicken breast instead of boned, true! Also had no-fat vanilla yogurt on hand that I think added to GREAT flavour too! Thanks for the recipe!
