    firefly68's Note:

    This is from "The Mediterranean Kitchen" by Joyce Goldstein. I haven't tried it but it sure sounds good! It's meant to be cooked over charcoal, or under the hot oven broiler. It gives a choice of 4 half-chickens, but I couldn't get the system to accept them. I'll probably make this with bone-in thighs as that is what I usually buy, and skewers would be an unnecessary step/cleanup.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Toast the cumin seeds in a small saute pan over medium heat until the seeds are fragrant and start to pop in the pan. Remove from the heat and grind in a spice grinder.
    2. 2
      Place the cumin, onion, garlic, paprika, and lemon juice in a food processor or blender and pulse to liquify. Add the yogurt and pulse just until blended.
    3. 3
      Put the chicken thighs in a shallow non-aluminum baking dish or bowl. Pour the marinade over the chicken and toss well to coat. Let stand at room temperature at least 2 hours or cover and refrigerate overnight.
    4. 4
      Preheat the broiler or BBQ. Thread the thighs, if using, on 4 skewers. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Broil or grill until the juices run clear, about 6 minutes each side. Serve hot with lemon wedges.
