I thought this was fabulous. I made it exactly as directed with Greek yogurt.

Easy and good, but two tips: MARINATE the chicken in the spice rub for at least 3 hours. For realz. I could barely taste the blend. --I used Fage skim yogurt because it's not sweet, but I'll probably try the 2% next time. A little more fat would have tempered the yogurt's acidity.

The chicken in this recipe was quite tasty...the spices really melded together to give a delicious taste. However, the yogurt sauce was disguisting...it was WAY TOO salty and tasted almost bitter with the garlic. Don't get me wrong...I usually double the garlic in most recipes because I am such a fan! If making the sauce again, I would taste before adding salt and halve the garlic. Otherwise, would definitley make again.

This recipe was very tasty. I didn't have the red pepper, so it didn't have the extra kick. The yogurt was a hit and went well with the green beans I served along with the chicken and couscous. The yogurt is meant to have a cooling affect from the red pepper, but I didn't miss the pepper. I would definately make this again.

I have to agree with Dr. Ashley -- the yogurt sauce was very strange in this dish. I actually added some lemon juice at the table, which I have never done before, and still didn't care for it. While it's a very easy and quick dish to make, I would consider the time better spent making something else. My husband liked it better than I did, but didn't really push for me to keep the recipe.

I always use my own raita (yogurt) recipe, and I took the other user's tip on marinating the meat. I also took another tip to cook my Far East couscous in chicken broth - but I think it depends on if you're using plain couscous or not! Chicken broth adds a lot of saltiness to flavored couscous. In addition to the couscous, we normally have spicy peas or green salad. This is a very fast, light and flavorful Indian-style dinner, but it's not something I'd ever try to serve to my friends as Indian cuisine. I've made this chicken several times, on the occasions when I do not feel like spending all day preparing real Indian food! It's fast and easy, and very tasty.

Delicious! My boyfriend absolutely loved it. Used bone-in, skin-on chicken, so it took a bit longer to cook, and I tripled the spice mixture. Served over curry-flavored cous-cous. The yogurt sauce was so easy to make and the perfect complement. Will make again ASAP!

Freakishly quick and easy. My husband loved it.

We really enjoyed this dish and will make it again for sure. The yogurt sauce was great. It does have a strong garlic flavor (which we love), but I wouldn't add any extra garlic. Used greek plain yogurt. Used whole wheat Israeli couscous, which worked well.

Really easy and very tasty. Great go to recipe. Sort of Indian but not authentic. My husband can't eat cilantro so i replaced it with Italian flat leaf parsley - the sauce was still very tastey. Great go to meal - ready in 15 mins.

Sounded better than it tasted. The sauce was just odd. All I could taste was the cilantro. The couscous didn't work for me either. Guess I'm just not a fan of the combination. Won't make again.
