How to make Greek Yogurt Garlic Chicken

  1. Make deep cuts 2-3 in the Drumsticks. Keep aside
  2. In a small bowl, mix the lemon juice with the lemon zest. Add salt and pepper in the same and mix well. Let it rest for 2 mins.
  3. Add the Garlic to this premix and put 3/4th cup yogurt in it.
  4. Stir well to make a paste. Apply this paste on the chicken and ensure it is applied all over including the cuts/slits.
  5. Keep it in refrigerator for 8 hours/ Overnight.
  6. Preheat an oven on 200 Degrees for 5 mins
  7. Place a butter paper on the baking tray and place the drumsticks. Ensure that they are not dripping. Remove all excess marinade and keep aside.
  8. Keep the Oven on 180 degrees and set the timer for 10 mins.
  9. Apply the remaining marinade and turn sides. Brush some olive oil on it.
  10. Keep at the same temperature for 10 mins. Remove.
  11. Check on the basis of tenderness of the chicken and flip again if needed and brush some more oil. Keep for another 10 mins at the same temperature.
  12. The reason for flipping every 10 mins is that the chicken will remain tender and juicy. Keeping it flat for 30 mins on one side makes it hard in spite of the yogurt.
  13. On a serving plate, use the remaining 1/4th Mango Greek Yogurt to draw a pattern, keep it in a bowl if that's difficult.
  14. Place the drumsticks on the platter and serve hot.

My Tip:

Please remember that the juiciness of the drumsticks will depend largely on the Marination time and the style of baking. Keep flipping sides every 10 mins for best results.
