Yogurt Marinated Chicken Thighs

There are these sandwich spread things, like creamy flavored dips, that come with catered lunch meat deli plates. 

No one spreads them on sandwiches.. Trust me.

Well, I walked away with a tub after a retirement party this week. 

And after dolloping it on meat and eggs, dipping crackers in it and carrots and celery, man there is still a lot of it left..

So, a big spoonful went into some plain yogurt, and it makes a great tasty chicken marinade.

Easy. Juicy. Moist.

I think the deli platter was from Sam’s Club? No idea..



  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • splash of oil
  • 2 tbsp or so of a chipotle sandwich spread thing (or seasonings!)
  • 4-5 large chicken thighs
  • optional topping- some fresh cilantro

Mix up the yogurt, oil, and sandwich spread. Add the chicken and cover well. Put it into the fridge for a few hours- however much time you have.

On a hot grill (400?), drop the chicken thighs and cook til done, turning once. Mine took 20 minutes.

Season well and sprinkle with cilantro.

Maybe serve with rice and a cucumber salad..

Yogurt makes a great marinade because it keeps the chicken moist. I did it once with Rosemary Skewers..

What am I going to do with the rest of this sandwich spread medley? hmmm…

What is this stuff??
