20 Best Chicken Thigh Recipes

“Here is another excellent recipe of Vikram Vij from his restaurant Vij’s in Vancouver. Lots of flavor but very simple to make. I post it as it is originally, but I did cut down on the salt. The recipe said 1 1/2 tablespoon of salt! I think it was a mistake. I have after making it twice cut it down to 1 1/2 teaspoon. Feel free to use more. If you ever visit Vancouver BC…you must go to Vij’s!!!”

Vij's Yogurt and Tamarind Marinated Grilled Chicken created by DianaEatingRichly
Ready In: 8hrs 30mins




  • In a large mixing bowl combine the yogurt, tamarind, garlic, canola, salt, cayenne and garam massala.
  • Add the chicken, mix and make sure the chicken is covered with the marinade.
  • Cover and marinate for a minimum of 4 hours but 8 is prefered.
  • Preheat a grill, barbeque or stovetop cast-iron grill to high heat(if doing this indoors make sure you switch on your exhaust fan,there will be smoke whilst grilling on the high heat. (doing this in a pan does not work for me, it makes a mess and does not brown so well, grill or barbeque gave me a better result).
  • Grill the thighs 2 minutes on each side, then again 2 minutes on each side.
  • Check or the thighs are done, if still pink continue grilling.
  • Serve with the lemon wedges.
  • Note: Tamarind paste should be as thick as jam, if thinner use up to 1 tablespoon more.
