From Story City, Iowa, Vicki Floden sends this finger-licking main course. Set the chicken in the peppery marinade a night early and there won't be much dinner preparation the following day.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 25, 2014

I've made this twice now and it has been a hit both times. It's nice to have something a little different from the usual flavors I cook with.. I used sour cream instead of plain yogurt and I used boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of breast. So juicy & tasty!

MY REVIEW

My husband and I didn't care for this recipe at all. The taste of lemon was too strong and the consistency of the yogurt is strange. I won't be making this again.

This is similar to another marinade I make often, so I thought it would taste about the same, but it was better! Really delicious.

This recipe is a definite keeper. The whole family, including a couple of terribly picky eaters, loved it. It couldn't have been easier to fix, either.
