Garam Masala Yoghurt Marinated Chicken with Watermelon Salad – Garam Masala Yoghurt Marinerad Kyckling med Vattenmelon Sallad

IMG_0773

I don’t even remember where this recipe originally came from – but we’ve made it at home over the past years, and I don’t use a recipe anymore, just mix the marinade together. It’s a quite spicy taste, and for me, growing up with quite Scandinavian flavors, the idea of marinating chicken in yoghurt never struck me! Although, this is so amazingly delicious, and the yoghurt makes the chicken super moist. The watermelon salad is just watermelon and cucumber – but I love serving it in the half watermelon – it just makes it look so much better, even though it’s super easy. Optional to add halloumi cheese  on the side – but highly recommended🙂

1 pound of boneless chicken thighs / 500 g kyckling lårfilé

2 cups of greek yoghurt / 5 dl yoghurt

2 cucumbers / 2 gurkor 

1.Start by mixing the garam masala with the yoghurt. / Börja med att blanda kryddan med yoghurten.
