Baked Spicy Chicken

This is a recipe that rivals the ones listed. I am sharing my secret chicken ingredient with the nation today, guess what it is –  yogurt. Yes yogurt. Without going into too much sciency detail, the acid in the yogurt penetrates and breaks down the chicken muscle which leads to a more intense flavored moist chicken.

Still have your nose turned up to the idea of yogurt + meat? please please humor me, just do half batch with yogurt and do half batch without. Now come back and give me your verdict.
