  • Dip each chicken thigh into yogurt mixture and place on a plate. Cover with foil and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking dish and place chicken thighs inside.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 50 to 55 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
