This is a very easy and simple recipe for chicken. I like the idea of marinating the chicken and hand it to my husband to grill on the BBQ, this way we can “share” the cooking.
What I like about this recipe is the low content of salt for the ones watching for their blood pressure. So many spices are added to the mixture of yogurt that you will not miss the salt for flavor and the chicken comes out of the grill so tender.


½ cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoon lemon zest
2 tablespoon lemon juice
4 garlic cloves finely chopped
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon coriander
½ teaspoon red pepper flake
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon dry rosemary
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

2 lbs of chicken breast or deboned thigh


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, except the chicken. Pour the yogurt mix to the chicken, mix gently and cover the bowl. Marinade the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight for more an enhanced flavor.
Grilled the chicken on the BBQ and serve hot.
