    Delicious and healthy. Kittencal has another winner here. I marinated for more than 24 hours! I will be making this again.

    So very, very good! I made it with just chicken legs (it was what was on sale! LOL) and only marinaded it for a few hours due to lack of planning and they were still excellent! My kids loved the slightly spicy flavor and they were even better the next day! Paired with Canary Island Spicy Potatoes (#95310) and green beans for a gluten free dinner. Delicious!

    I could not discard the yogurt marinade, the smell was too good. I grilled the legs in the oven. 10 Minutes before serving I spooned the rest of the marinad on the chicken and I grilled until brown.<br/>Delicious with this sauce and rice together. Thanks for the recipe!
