    This made a quick and easy weeknight meal, I used a George Foreman grill. I think I will up all of the spices a little next time, especially the ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom. I could hardly taste those because the cayenne, chili powder, and paprika masked them. Thanks for posting!

    Outstanding chicken! I used skinless thighs, legs and breasts and all came out tender, juicy and so flavorful. Wonderful aroma too - it brought everyone running when the chicken was brought in from the grill! We will use this recipe often - thanks for sharing!

    A very nice and simple recipe. I think it needs a bit of something though. Will add salt next time. Thanks!!

    We enjoyed this chicken dish very much. I left the skin on it was crispy and flavorful, while the meat was juicy and tender. All the different spices blended beautifully together with the yogurt to create this tasty treat. We baked ours in the oven, as it was snowing here today. Thanks so much for sharing.

    This was excellent - the kids ate it up, and it grilled beautifully. It did make about double the amount of marinade I actually needed to cover the thighs, next time I'll probably halve it just to save the spices, or keep it as is and throw another batch in the freezer. (Don't know how yogurt will do in the freezer, tho...) Anyway, for DH and I, we'd probably up the cayenne, but as is, even my 4yo ate it up. Thanks!!


I have two boys Eddie 18 and Brandon 10. I have been with my hubby for 16 years. I work full time outside the home and my boys keep me busy at home. Eddie is a singer and base guitar player in a band and Brandon races go karts. We also have a Collie/Beagle mix named Sugar. I love to cook and try out new recipes. My family likes it too but at times ask my to make just "normal" food, as I forget sometimes to make my own TNT recipes. I cook a lot with with my crock pot as it makes life a lot easier for me. I am always on the look out for new crock pot recipes. I'm not much of a baker as I don't like to measure things. I collect cookbooks and recipes in general. I usually start with a recipe and tweak to my families liking. My Rating System: 5 Stars = The whole family enjoyed the dish and it will be added to my TNT cookbook. Book #220911. These recipes will be made again and again. 4 Stars = Recipe was good, but needed some modifications or it was good but not something we would want on a regular basis. Also goes into my TNT-4 star recipe cookbook. Book #220912 3 Stars = It was edible, but won't be made again. 2 Stars = Needs some kind of major adjustments. 1 Stars = Inedible, didn't work, waste of ingredients.
