How to Make It

Step 1    

In a bowl, combine the yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, onion, coriander, cumin, salt, pepper, saffron and cinnamon. Stir well to blend.

Step 2    

Place the chicken pieces in a large glass or ceramic dish and pour the marinade on top. Let marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 3    

Light a grill. Cook the chicken pieces over a medium-hot fire, turning often, until lightly charred on both sides and just cooked through, about 10 minutes per side.

Notes

Variation To use this marinade for lamb, simply substitute 1 whole butterflied leg of lamb (4 pounds) for the chicken pieces.

Suggested Pairing

The yogurt marinade adds tang to the grilled chicken. Showcase the flavors with a round, ripe California Chardonnay.
