This came from Rosie Daly's cookbook, In the Kitchen with Rosie, Oprah's Favorite Recipes. The yogurt adds a great flavor to this dish. My husband and I love it.

Good flavor. I used 6 large chicken thighs, so cut coating ingredients in half and could cut down even more. I didn't have yogurt so substituted with some sour cream. Thanks for a tasty recipe!
