I LOVE chicken cooked like this!!! When I make it, I don't think of the yogurt as just a marinade; I cook the chicken IN the yogurt "sauce" and serve it over rice. The "sauce" will separate during cooking and doesn't look pretty, but can be whisked before serving to make a smoother, more presentable sauce. I also like to add a can of sliced black olives and about a tablespoon of capers when I fix this. Served over or with rice or cous cous, with a great tossed green salad, it makes a wonderfully tasty and healthy meal. I also have found that non-fat plain yogurt actually works better than regular, which makes it healthier still.
