Spiced Yogurt Chicken

A simple yogurt based marinade for drumsticks that produces moist, incredibly flavorful chicken! Excellent served with naan and feta cheese.

– 4-6 chicken drumsticks – 1/2 cup plain yogurt – 2 tsp minced garlic – 1/4 cup parsley leaves – 2 tsp cumin – 2 tsp paprika – 1 tsp salt – 1/2 tsp pepper – Feta cheese & naan for serving, optional



In a food processor, combine the yogurt, garlic, parsley, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Process until well combined and parsley is finely chopped.

Add the yogurt mixture and the drumsticks to a large ziploc bag. Rub the marinade around the chicken legs, making sure to get it under the skin.

Marinade chicken for at least 30 minutes, up to 24 hours.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (218 degrees C). Arrange drumsticks on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, then remove from oven and flip the chicken legs and bake for another 15 minutes, until cooked through and skin is golden brown. If necessary, broil the chicken for a few minutes to brown the skin.

Let chicken rest for five minutes before serving. Serve with feta cheese and naan, if desired.
