Delicious tender grilled chicken legs marinated in yogurt. This is not a typical Turkish dish but it is very Middle Eastern with the yogurt and cinnamon.
- 6 big chicken legs
- 8 tablespoons yogurt
- 8 tablespoons good olive oil
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons ground sweet pepper
- 1 teaspoon spicy pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 lemon juiced
- pepper and salt to taste
Mix all the ingredients for the marinate and cover the chicken legs for at least 2 hours.
Then put them in an oven dish with all the yogurt mixture big enough to take them in. The oven temperature should be 140°C. İ put first the skin side of the leg down. Then after 1 hour turn them over and let them cook nice and crispy. They are ready when the meat falls from the bone, but do not overcook them.
