Yogurt Spiced Chicken


With Summer rapidly approaching (June 21st), you can’t help but envision BBQ’s and alfresco dining with a generous portion of grilled meat. Along side the conventional dogs and patties, I also enjoy including some chicken, especially this yogurt spiced chicken. The yogurt gets penetrated really well with the spices and makes for an incredibly juicy and flavorful chicken. The powers of yogurt are both delicious and wonderful. You can whip up something savory like this, make parfaits like my friend Sav from EatNowCryLater did or make some light, refreshing (not to mention almost fat free) garlic yogurt dressing or moist and tender honey banana bread.
