Spicy Yoghurt Chicken

Spicy Yoghurt Chicken by Carole's Chatter

This spicy yoghurt chicken dish was the first time I have based a marinade on yoghurt.  And I used my very own home made yoghurt too!

For the marinade:

Tsp chilli powder
Tblsp cumin
Tblsp ground coriander seeds
2 tsp turmeric

Once I had ground the cumin and coriander with the salt I then added the other ingredients to the bowl and put in the chicken thighs (which I cut into thirds).

I let it sit in the marinade for over 30 minutes and then tonged the chicken out and coated it in seasoned breadcrumbs.

I then baked the chicken in a moderate oven until the juices ran clear when pricked with a knife.

The spice in the marinade did give a good feeling of heat to the chicken.  I would do this again.


  1. You always come up with such interesting marinades! I've heard of buttermilk marinades for chicken, and I imagine the yogurt version would be healthier. :)

  2. I love chicken marinated in yogurt. I think it makes it more tender too.

  3. I love yogurt-based marinades for chicken. This sounds similar to raita spices. Yummmmmm

  4. Sounds good! I think this is done in some Indian cooking, and your ingredients fit right in with Indian cuisine!
