Favorite chicken marinades

31 Mar

Two of my favorite chicken rubs

Rub #1

Mix together basil(dried or fresh), dried oregano, dried onion flakes, crushed red pepper, salt with plain yogurt. You may add water if the yogurt is too thick. Coat the cleaned chicken(could be chicken breasts or thighs or wings) with the mixture and leave for a few hours. Can be cooked on a grill, or a simple saute pan until a little blackened and tender or as you like it.

Rub #2

Grind coarsely mint leaves, cilantro(coriander leaves), few drops of lemon juice(do not go overboard), green chilies, few garlic cloves and salt. Add some yogurt to the blended mixture and coat the chicken with the green marinade and leave for a few hours. Can be grilled or simply sauteed in a pan on the stove until fully cooked and starting to blacken.

Both of them are equally AWESOME. I could not decide which one was better!!
