Grilled Marinated Chicken with Yogurt and Asian Spices
Yogurt has a long tradition in Middle Eastern cuisine. It is used as a base for everything from condiments to sauces and marinades. In a marinade it not only adds flavor, but it acts as a tenderizer. The flavors in this dish are robust, but they are tempered by the yogurt and are tremendously pleasing. Like the other chicken recipes in this book, serving this at room temperature is fine, so don’t hesitate to put it in a lunchbox as long as it will be eaten within four hours or is packed with a small icepack.
