“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.)”


    • 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
    • ⅓ cup grated onion (about 1 medium)
    • 3 tablespoons curry powder
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
    • 4 large or 8 small bone-in chicken thighs (about 2 pounds), skin removed


  • 1 Whisk yogurt, onion, curry powder, oil, salt and crushed red pepper in a shallow pan. Add chicken and turn until well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 8 hours.
  • 2 Preheat grill to medium-high or broiler to high. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and grill or broil, turning once or twice, until no longer pink in the center, 25 to 30 minutes.
