Marinating chicken or meat with yogurt tenderizes and makes your meat or chicken moist, been doing it for years, what I haven’t done till now was add sriracha. Oh boy have I been missing out! I am a little late on joining the sriracha train, but I am here now and am loving it! I add it to mayo, stir fry, marinades, it’s full of flavour and adds a little heat.
I don’t really measure, I just add all the ingredients to a bowl and taste as I go along. I will share the approximate ingredients and you can go from there.
What you will need:
- 1 whole chicken or chicken pieces
3/4 -1 cup plain or balkan yogurt
juice of one lemon
1 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp Montreal chicken seasoning
In a bowl combine all the ingredients, start with a teaspoon of sriracha and adding more if desired, taste for salt and seasonings. We like it spicy, so I use a few squeezes of the sriracha.
Cut chicken into 8 parts if using a whole chicken, pour or squeeze the lemon juice over chicken. In a deep bowl combine marinade and chicken. Allow to marinate for a few hours or over night for optimum flavour.
Bake at 375 or 400 for an hour, or 1 hour and 15-25 minutes depending on your oven and how big your chicken pieces are, it varies. Check chicken before serving to make sure its fully cooked. Enjoy!
