½ cup thick plain yoghurt
1 teaspoon each smoked paprika and ground cumin
1 teaspoon Friendly Fantail Turmeric Latte Mix
¼–½ teaspoon chilli flakes (you can of course leave this out if you have people who don’t like chilli)
3 tablespoons olive oil
8 boneless, skin-on chicken thighs (or one whole chicken)  
sea salt and ground pepper
lemon wedges, to serve


Preheat the oven to 180°C fan bake.

Whisk the yoghurt with all the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and season generously with salt and pepper. Add a squeeze of lemon in here if you fancy it.

Fully coat the chicken in the yoghurt mixture. Place skin-side up on a lined baking tray (if using thighs, leave a little space between each one so they roast but don’t steam).

Roast until golden brown and fully cooked through.

Serve with lemon wedges and your favorite roasties!. 

Serves 4.
