I eat a lot of chicken so I’m always looking for new ways to cook it. Here’s one that’s as delicious as it is spicy. Feel free to kick up the heat with some red pepper flakes. Using curry powder in place of the spices would work as well for an easy curried chicken.
2 pounds boneless chicken (either breasts or thighs)
4 green onions chopped
12 ounces of plain, non-dairy yogurt (I used Oatly but Kite makes a nut based one which would also work)
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger (you can buy already grated/minced ginger)
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoon ground tumeric
1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon’s worth)
Spray a 9″x9″ baking dish with cooking spray. Add chicken.
In a separate bowl, mix all the ingredients except the chicken and green onions. Pour over the chicken and turn the chicken so all sides are coated. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to marinate. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake chicken for 40-60 minutes depending on the size of your chicken pieces. Top with the green onions. Serves 4.
