Reviews for Yogurt-Marinated Chicken
"easy and flavorful, although we added more chile powder. Since there isn't much sugar in the marinade, it doesn't burn on the grill."
"This wasn't bad but not as much flavor as I had hoped, and I did marinate it overnight. I think if you used boneless skinless meat, the flavor would be stronger."
"Definitly making this one again! It has great flavor and chicken stays nice and moist. It was a great hit!"
"Full of flavor and yummy"
"Delicious! The yogurt really keeps the chicken moist and tender."
