Serves 4

From the BBC Good Food's "40 best chicken recipes" booklet. Can either be done in the oven, or griddled, or BBQ'd - would taste great whichever way you choose. I served it with a salad and new potatoes, but I can't help thinking it would be fabulous in half a french stick, with salad & mango chutney included!

  • 8 skinless chicken drumsticks
  • 142ml pot natural yoghurt
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp ground turmeric


    1. Make a few slashes in each chicken breast and place into a plastic bag.
    2. Add the remaining ingredients to the bag and seal, then squish to make sure the meat is covered in the marinade.
    3. Refrigerate for 30 mins minimum, longer if you have the time.
    4. Heat oven to 200c/fan 180c/gas6 and roast for 30 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.
