Ingredients

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl or gallon-sized plastic bag. Stir (or smush around, if in a bag), to coat the chicken evenly. Cover and marinate for at least one hour, and up to overnight, in the refrigerator.
  • Place the chicken on a baking rack in a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.
  • Broil for ten minutes on each side, or until chicken is charred and fully cooked.
  • Serve with extra lime wedges and garnish with cilantro, if desired.

Notes

  • I recommend using full-fat yogurt. If using fat-free, I recommend adding 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the marinade.
  • The provided nutrition information does not include any added sodium from seasoning to taste, any optional ingredients, and it does not take brands into account. Feel free to calculate it yourself using this calculator or by adding the recipe to Yummly.
