This is my quick and tasty recipe for chicken legs. You can use chicken thighs or chicken breast if you prefer it. Today I served the chicken with roasted winter vegetables and baked potatoes but very good served with rice, pasta or with just a simple salad.

  • 8 chicken drum sticks
  • 5 tbsp natural yogurt
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2-4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar or normal vinegar
  • 2 tsp mixed dried herbs
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
1) First wash chicken pieces and drain.
2) mix the marinade: Mix yogurt and tomato puree. Add the crushed garlic, oil and vinegar.
3) Add the herbs, spices , salt and pepper. Mix well.
4) Pour the marinade over the chicken, cover with cling film and keep it in the fridge preferably overnight. ( if you don't have time, minimum 2-4 hour will be fine )
5) Cook the chicken pieces in preheated oven ,190 C for 45 minutes to one hour.

It resembles a very good chicken dish I ate in Turkey once. I will try this!
