Hi / Salaam friends!
Just popping in to share my Spicy Yogurt Marinated Chicken recipe with you!
Spicy Yogurt & Coriander Chicken

Here’s a great alternative recipe for your Sunday roast.
Try a spicy twist with your chicken, this dish works well served hot with rice or naan, roast potatoes and a garden salad.
The yoghurt tenderises the chicken much more gently and effectively than regular marinades.
I used a whole chicken which I cut into 8 pieces. You can use chicken legs or chicken fillets. My spicy yoghurt chicken tastes is great cooked on the braai/BBQ too!
1 chicken, approx. 1kg
1 cup plain or Greek yoghurt
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp turmeric / borrie
1 tsp cumin / jeera
1 – 2 tsp salt (according to taste)
½ tsp chilli powder
4 large cloves of garlic, grated
1 small piece ginger, grated (approx. 5cm)
2 large onions, peeled and finely chopped
1 small green pepper, deseeded and chopped
Small bunch dhanya, chopped (keep some of the leaves for garnish)
Clean and cut the chicken into 8 pieces. Mix together the yogurt, paprika, turmeric, cumin, salt, chilli powder, garlic and ginger in a bowl.
Marinade the chicken with this mixture and refrigerate for at least one hour or for best results overnight.
Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the chopped onions and braise until golden brown. Add the chopped green pepper. Cook together for about 5 minutes.
Add the chicken pieces (preserve the marinade) and brown on both sides.
Transfer to an oven proof dish. Mix in the extra marinade sauce and chopped dhanya.
Grill in a pre-heated oven until the chicken has cooked through and is golden brown in colour.
Serve with naan or boiled rice, grilled potatoes and green salad.
