Finger Lickin’ Chicken

Serves: 2 - 4 people

Difficulty: Easy

The title of this recipe says it all…


  • 6 chicken thighs, skin and bone removed, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 tablespoon thick Greek yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried herbs, or finely chopped fresh herbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic puree
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • salt, to taste


1. In a bowl mix together the chicken thighs, yoghurt, turmeric powder, chilli powder, smoked paprika, black pepper, herbs, garlic puree and honey. If you have any other favourite spices then add whatever you fancy...a really good pinch should do.

2. Cover and leave to marinade in the fridge for a few hours if you have time (overnight would be ideal).

3. Bring the chicken back to room temperature before seasoning well with salt and grilling either on a scorching griddle pan, or under a preheated grill, only turning when its golden brown.

4. Check the chicken is cooked through before serving with a simple raita and salad.
