Dish #406 - Turkish Chicken (Grilled)

A simple easy to make Chicken grill dish....served with half boiled veges....a complete dinner in itself...
If you marinate it in advance and keep in the fridge it could be a perfect dinner after a long day at work...
Just get home from work, preheat the oven for 10 minutes and then put these chicken legs on to the grill...
By the time you are ready to eat the chicken will be ready....
You can grill the veges too or serve these with a fresh loaf of bread picked up on your way back home...
A perfect dinner....

Place the chicken legs 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.
