was kind of spicy and just an "ok" recipe
Thank you Kim for the recipe. I'm not crazy about drumsticks (reminds me of when I had to pluck & gut chickens), I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I did everything else in the recipe as stated. I liked using the Greek yogurt. It stayed on the chicken without becoming runny. The garlic was not over powering (don't tell my husband it was in there, he's not a
garlic lover). I will make this again and was thinking about using it for fish. Any comment on that?
My family is not big on drumsticks, but since they are more affordable and our finances are stretched right now, I thought I would try this recipe. I have a very picky eater and a not so picky eater, so this was a risky recipe to try. I took the risk and this was a hit! I couldn't believe that my picky eater loved this! I will definitely make this again. I followed the recipe exactly, but next time, I may use regular yogurt since the Greek one is so expensive. Our family is also Gluten Free, so I used brown rice flour instead of the wheat flour and it worked just fine as a substitute. Really good recipe.
This was very tasty, but it's quite a bit more work than baked chicken with the skin on, which I do quite often. I appreciate that it is not as greasy as true fried chicken! The amount of spices is also perfect. I will make this again when we have a group over because it can be baking when people arrive.
I really liked the marinade for this chicken and will use it again in the future, I just need a little more cruch to make it more like fried chicken. When making this again I think I will add panko (maybe roll in panko prior to putting into powdered mixture), and will experiment with using other pieces of the chicken as well...thigh, breast...
