what a lovely idea... they looks very good and have that wonderful 'fried' look without the calories... and I love baked chicken anyway so this is perfect for me (although i'd probably leave the skin on just to be a little naughty!!)

What a great baked chicken recipe! I'm not using my oven right now, but I bet this could be baked on the grill. I love the spices and I'm sure the yogurt keeps it very moist, which I need since I do remove the skin.
