Yoghurt Marinade for Chicken or Lamb


If you like something different for the BBQ, then try this marinade. It acts as both a flavouring and a tenderiser to the meat – clever stuff!

1 small onion (finely grated)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
30-40 strands of saffron infused with 4 tablespoons boiling water
100g Greek yoghurt
1 lemon (juice only)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon powdered cumin
1 tablespoon fresh flat leaf parsley (very finely chopped)
black pepper

Combine all the ingredients and coat the meat and leave for at least 2 hours before cooking on the BBQ.
