Afghan Chicken
/ Cuisine: Afghan


Qty unit Ingredient
2 cloves
1/2 teaspoon
2 cups
4 tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon
2 pounds


Marinade in the refrigerate overnight.

Long, slow marinating in the garlic yogurt mixture tenderizes, moistens and adds flavor to the chicken.

Put the salt in a shallow non-reactive bowl with the garlic and mash them together until you have paste. Add yogurt, lemon juice and black pepper.

Skin the chicken breasts, remove all visible fat. Add the chicken to the yogurt mixture and turn so all surfaces are well-coated. Cover the bowl tightly and refrigerate. Allow to marinate at least overnight and up to a day and a half. Turn occasionally.

When you're ready to cook; remove the chicken breasts from marinade and wipe off all but a thin layer. Discard the marinade as it contained raw chicken.

Broil or grill about 6 inches from the heat for 10 to 12 minutes a side, or until thoroughly cooked. Allow the meat to brown somewhat but not char.

Serve hot with a soft pita and fresh yogurt on the side.
