Yogurt-Curry Marinated Chicken Thighs

Yogurt-Curry Marinated Chicken Thighs

From: EatingWell Magazine, March/April 2014

This healthy chicken thigh recipe is tender and packed with flavor, thanks to a yogurt-based marinade. The healthy yogurt marinade recipe also works well with pork, shrimp, firm fish or tofu. (Divide the recipe in half if marinating 1 pound of chicken thighs.)
