Die reuk in die huis… ‘n perfekte resep vir hoender op die braai!
A healthy chicken thigh recipe that is tender and packed with flavour, thanks to a yoghurt-based marinade. The marinade also works well with pork, shrimp or firm fish.
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1/3 cup grated onion (1 medium)
- 3 tbsp curry powder
- 1 tsp mother-in-law curry powder (optional, if you prefer a spicier version)
- 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp crushed red pepper
- 4 large or 8 small bone-in chicken thighs, we prefer skin on, but you can remove it
Whisk yogurt, onion, curry powder, mother-in-law powder, oil, salt and crushed red pepper in a shallow pan.
Add chicken and turn until well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Remove chicken from marinade and grill, turning once or twice, basting every 10 minutes with leftover marinade until no longer pink in the center, Will also work well on the BBQ. Garnish with cilantro.
