Why I Love This Recipe

If you are craving chicken this is the recipe to go with. It has a great depth of flavor and is loved by almost every one.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 pounds chicken legs , no skin (8 legs)
2 cups greek yogurt
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 tablespoon garam masala
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon yellow food coloring
1 teaspoon red food coloring
1 lemon juiced


Cut very shallow little lines into the de-skinned chicken legs and add them to a large bowl or a zipper bag.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the chicken and mix well (I use a zipper bag and just sort of squish it all around).

Let marinade in the refrigerator for at LEAST 8 hours, preferably 24 hours.

Remove the majority of the marinade before cooking the chicken.

Heat the oiled grill to medium-high heat and cook the chicken until cooked through, 10-12 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and cook on a sheet pan for 25-30 minutes.

Pairs Well With

Naan and yogurt sauce
