  1. 1.In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, minced garlic, grated ginger, ground turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander, cayenne pepper, and salt.
  2. 2.Add the chicken thighs to the bowl and coat them well with the marinade. Let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or overnight for maximum flavor.
  3. 3.Preheat the grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush the grill grates or pan with vegetable oil to prevent sticking.

  5. 5.Transfer the grilled chicken to a serving platter and garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
  6. 6.Enjoy your Dubai Delight with a squeeze of lemon juice for an extra burst of flavor!
