Garlic, "Lemon," Mint, & Yogurt Marinated Chicken

Chicken is one of those love-hate meals for me. When it’s well marinated, I love it. But otherwise it’s just a bit boring for my tastes. I decided rather than a short-marinade, I’d let the chicken marinate in the yogurt sauce for almost 24 hours. It was definitely the right choice. They turned out succulent and had a nice “lemon” kick to it from the ascorbic acid.

2 chicken breasts & legs with thighs (all skinless)

1 1/2 C plain yogurt

1 C chopped mint

1 Tbsp cumin

8 large cloves garlic, pressed

2 Tbsp onion powder

1 tsp salt

2 tsp ascorbic acid

  • Mix all ingredients together in a Ziplock bag, and ensure chicken is well coated.
  • Press all air out of the bag, and leave it in the fridge to marinate, flipping over halfway through if possible. Marinate for 24 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees on the middle rack.

  • Cover chicken and bake for 30 minutes.
