Chicken Yoghourt Marinade

It’s finally time to dust off the BBQ, remove the rain covers and get down to some good old summer cooking in the garden. Obviously, I say this with the caveat that these rubs, glazes and pesto’s all work great from the oven as well.


  • 4 medium chicken legs (8 pieces when cooked)
  • 150g thick Greek yogurt
  • juice finely grated zest 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint finely chopped
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp fried oregano
  • ½ tsp dried chilli powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ small onion, finely chopped
  • 3-4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
