what will happen if i don't wipe the excess marinade off with a paper towel before grilling?
TNX IN ADVANCE
I think today using yogurt on chicken is almost, almost, pointless. Those old recipes came when chicken used was not young, tougher and needed some serious marinating. Today, when chicken sold in the store are literally are still chicks, 3 months at the most, yogurt is unnecessary.
That is just my opinion.
Then again, I keep kosher so I cannot use yogurt and I can guarantee that my grilled chicken is as good as any yogurt marinated chicken.
Good point Charlie. Hadn't thought of it that way.
But yogurt can add a different flavour, so although you could use it to make a sauce of some sort, it is not necessary to marinate. Even the thighs and legs are pretty tender now-a-days which is where the marinade is used a lot.
Then again, for those of you on farms, or buy specific 'stewing' hens, might be an option!
