Yougurt-curry Marinated Chicken Thighs

1 cup nonfat plain yogurt (Greek Gods Plain preferred)
1/3 cup grated onion (about 1 medium)
3 tablespoons curry powder
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 large or 8 small bone-in chicken thighs (about 2 pounds), skin removed


  • Whisk yogurt, onion, curry powder, oil, salt, and crushed red pepper in a bowl.
  • Dredge each piece of chicken in marinade, place in ziploc, and then add remaining sauce to bag. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 8 hours.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and grill, turning once until no longer pink in the center.  About 25 to 30 minutes.

I’m violating my Onolish rule here by publishing this recipe after making the dish only once.  A couple of  caveats:  I used boneless thighs so I had to watch the time more carefully.  I also marinated the thighs a little longer than 8 hours.  What’s nice about this dish:  the flavors are well blended and the chicken is wonderfully moist and tender.
