Baked "Coronation" Style Chicken

October 6, 2015

Author Notes: I've always loved the sweet, fruity and savory flavors in coronation chicken, but don't always want a cold salad. This recipe uses the same ingredients in a baked chicken that is delicious, especially served over rice. The yogurt marinade makes the chicken very moist.Leith Devine

Directions

  1. Mix the yogurt, mayonnaise, chutney, apple, lemon zest and juice, onion, garlic and spices together thoroughly.
  2. Make 1-2 deep slashes in each piece of chicken so the marinade can penetrate to the bone.
  3. Marinate chicken thighs in a ziptop plastic bag or a bowl for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake chicken skin-side down, turning skin side up after 30 minutes. Chicken is finished when internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, approximately 1 hour.
