  1. Stir together yogurt, onion, and garlic in a shallow dish.
  2. Add lemon juice, cilantro, paprika, cumin, turmeric, ginger, salt, pepper, cinnamon, and cloves. Add chicken and coat well. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Overnight works best.
  3. Preheat oven to 500 F. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray (I use coconut oil)and set it over a foil covered baking sheet. Place the chicken on the prepped rack.
  4. Bake the chicken until browned and no pink remains. Serve hot with roti or rice, serve over a garden salad, quinoa, or add to a wrap. Endless possibilities to serve up this great dish.
