Spicy yogurt-lime chicken

IMG_6959.jpg

A happy accident today. A “yogurt dip” recipe by Marcus Samuelsson went awry and turned out to be way too thin, so I made a marinade out of it and it was gorgeous. Here’s my recipe, adapted  yogurt dip.

In a small bowl, mix

  • 1.5 C plain whole milk yogurt
  • the juice of 2 limes (while you’re at it, check out this protip on juicing limes efficiently)
  • 2 tsp parsley, minced
  • 2 tsp cilantro, minced

In a small pan over medium heat, add

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 inches ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • a few whole dried chiles de árbol, or 1/2 tsp red chile flakes

Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add:

  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander

Cook for a couple more minutes to get them spices toasty. Remove the chiles de árbol and do something else with them.

Allow this to cool a bit, then stir it into the yogurt mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add:

  • 6 bone-in chicken thigh+leg pieces

And refrigerate 1+ hours.

When you’re ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400F and bring out your chicken. Remove most of the marinade from the chicken pieces and place them on a rack in a sheet pan. Bake for about 45 minutes, basting with the remaining marinade twice during the final 20 minutes.
