I love marinating chicken using yogurt, makes it so moist & delicious! Great recipe idea, I usually use tandoori spices with mine :)

my mom (who is Persian) always marinates chicken breast in yogurt and saffron juice, I always thought it was so strange, but it actually makes the chicken very tender. You are so great at creating recipes, they sound amazing!
