For 8 chicken thighs
1 small onion (finely grated)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
30-40 strands of saffron infused with 4 tablespoons boiling water
100g Greek yoghurt
1 lemon (juice only)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon powdered cumin
1 tablespoon fresh flat leaf parsley (very finely chopped)
Combine all the ingredients and coat the meat and leave for at least 2 hours before cooking on the BBQ.
I had half a tub of natural yogurt left over from cooking cucumber soup and I wanted to get rid of it. So began an internet search for a recipe to use it up and this is what I found from whatyouhavingforyourtea.com.
Instead of bbqing or griddling it (which I thought would generate way too much smoke), I decided to bake it in the oven at 205 degrees for 30 minutes. I am pleasantly surprised by how good this recipe is, very intense flavours coming out of the marinade. I didn’t grate the onion because I was too lazy to do so, i chopped it up instead but it turned out quite well, the onions giving the chicken a nice crunch to it.
I am not too sure whether it’s spanish but since whatyouhavingforyourtea.com says it is, I will take it at face value.
