Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice mixed with 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Salt and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 chickens (each about 3 pounds) cut up
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups plain whole milk yogurt
Directions
  • In a small iron skillet toast the coriander and cumin for a few seconds or until the spices emit a lovely aroma. Remove from heat and cool for a moment. In a small mixing bowl combine the toasted spices with the paprika, lime juice and sugar. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and crushed red pepper.

  • Prick the chicken pieces all over and rub the pieces with half of the lime/spice mixture. Combine remaining half of lime/spice mixture with garlic, vegetable oil and yogurt. Marinate the chicken in the yogurt mixture for 24 hours, turning the pieces on occasion.

  • Preheat the broiler (or heat an outdoor grill) and set the rack 4 inches away from heat source. Remove chicken from marinade and broil, skin side down for about 15 minutes a side or until cooked through and browned. Let rest at room temperature for up to an hour before serving. Or chill and bring back to room temperature before serving.
