|TURKISH CHICKEN THIGHS|
8 pcs of bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed, trimmed.
1 tablespoon lemon juice.
1 cup low-fat plain yogurt.
2 cloves garlic, minced.
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger.
2 teaspoons hot paprika.
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped peppermint.
1/2 teaspoon salt.
2 teaspoons paprika.
1/4 teaspoon cayenne.
1: Place chicken in a large bowl. Add lemon juice and toss to coat. Whisk yogurt, garlic, ginger, paprika, mint and salt in a separate bowl.
Pour the yogurt mixture over the chicken and stir to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
2: Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Remove the chicken from the marinade (discard marinade). Place the chicken on a broiler rack and broil until browned on top, about 15 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 205 degrees C and bake until the chicken is juicy and just cooked through, about 15 minutes longer. (Thigh meat will appear dark pink, even when cooked through.) Serve immediately.
Chicken thighs are higher in fat than other cuts, but have the benefit of full-flavored, juicy meat. To minimize the fat, be sure to remove the skin and trim thighs thoroughly. bone-in thighs work best because they will retain their moisture better.
