How to Make a Roasting Rack


  • 1/4 cup plain whole milk yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Madras curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken drumsticks
  • Lime wedges and cilantro leaves, for serving
  • 1/2 Lime wedges and cilantro leaves

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the yogurt, lime juice, curry powder, salt and pepper. Add the chicken and toss until thoroughly coated in the yogurt mixture. Transfer to a resealable plastic bag and seal tightly, pressing out any air, then refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.

  2. Heat a grill over moderate heat. Lightly oil the grill rack and grill the chicken legs until the underside is well browned, about 10 minutes. Flip the chicken and continue to cook, turning occasionally, until browned all over and just cooked through, about 15 minutes more.

  3. Serve the chicken legs with lime wedges and cilantro.
