Grilled Chicken Marinade : Yogurt-Marinated Chicken

The sweet summer weather is here [well at least in this part of the world] and you know what that means?

Charcoal bbqs, outdoor meals, terraces and picnics!

I wanted to share this yogurt-based marinade that is incredibly easy to prepare. The meat will be juicy and fragrant, with a crunchy and caramelized outer layer.
 You can even make flavorful sandwiches and salads with the leftovers- if there are any!!

Chicken Yogurt Marinade 
 

Ingredients
Yields enough marinade for 8 pieces of chicken [I used 4 drumsticks & 4 whole legs]

3 small garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 c greek yogurt
2 tblsp honey
1 tsp smoked spanish paprika
2 tblsp chopped dill
1 tbslp chopped chives
 salt and pepper

Mix all the ingredients together in a glass bowl or pyrex. Before adding the chicken, taste the marinade and rectify the seasoning. Add the chicken and make sure it is completely coated with the marinade. Refrigerate for 2-8 hrs. Now its ready to be cooked.
 We cooked it on a charcoal grill and the chicken was delicious! If you want to add some spicy notes to this dish, you could add crushed, dried chilies to the marinade.  It will give a subtle smoked-chili flavor to the meat!

Enjoy & thank you for reading!
