"Left wing, chicken wing, it don't make no difference to me." -Woody Guthrie, Singer

The refrigerator light goes on...

The yogurt makes a great marinade for the chicken with a tart and bright flavor to go with the rich spices of India. The sauce brings both the bright flavor of the yogurt and the smoky spices together and is a super simple dinner. The hardest part is remembering to set the chicken to marinate in advance. The dish is fantastic with brown rice and the chicken makes great leftovers as sandwiches.
