This dinner turned out fabulous! The chicken is so flavorful and moist and the rice with yogurt sauce goes great with the salty fried halloumi.
We have changed from all forms of white rice to brown recently. I was afraid the brown basmati wouldn't have as good a flavor as the regular white but it was really good and much healthier.
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons chili powder

Grill until done.
*For extra flavor use hickory chips while grilling.
This is the first marinade. Now it goes off to the fridge to set for 30 minutes while you make the second marinade.
Okay.... the second yogurt marinade is on. Now let it sit overnight to marry all those wonderful flavors together.
We added some hickory chips while grilling to add a smoky flavor.
If it starts to stick use a metal spatula to flip it instead of tongs.
1 cup plain Yogurt
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
2 -3 tablespoons Cilantro, chopped
Mix together and serve on rice.
We really enjoyed our little taste of India tonight......
