Grilled Yogurt Marinated Chicken

September 25, 2019 0 Comments

Today we are making Grilled Yogurt Marinated Chicken on the Weber Kettle Grill. Yogurt is a natural tenderizer due to its acids that break down the protein wall in the chicken which allows the chicken to absorb moisture (which increases juiciness).

Grilled Yogurt Marinated Chicken


  • 1 bunch chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt
  • Juice from ½ orange
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 chicken thighs
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Spicy BBQ seasoning (or your favorite spicy BBQ rub) to taste.
