Yogurt Marinated Chicken really captured my taste buds. I have tried to substitute boneless skinless chicken and it is not the same. This recipe is best with split chicken breast or bone in chicken thighs.
I have tried to make this recipe in the oven and it really does not turn out the same at all. I prefer the smokiness flavor from the grill.
I often make extra chicken because it is so good on a salad, in a sandwich or wrap for lunches.
