CHICKEN MARINADE
1 tsp. olive oil
4 tsp. smoked paprika
1-1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1-1/2 tsp. coriander
2 tsp. tandoori spice (or garam masala)
1 tsp. tumeric
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1 sorrano pepper, coarsely chopped
8 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tbs. lemon juice

YOGURT SAUCE
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
3/4 tsp. ground cumin

1. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Combine marinade spices (through red pepper flakes) in a small bowl and add to pan.  Cook until fragrant (about 2 minutes).  Return to bowl and allow to cool.

2. Combine onion, pepper, garlic, yogurt, lemon juice and salt in a medium bowl and puree using an immersion blender (or throw it all into a food processor).  Blend until smooth.  Add spice mix.
Place chicken thighs into large resealable plastic bag, and cover with onion-yogurt mix. Place in refrigerator and allow to marinate for at least 24 hours.

3. Meanwhile, combine ingredients for yogurt sauce in a small bowl and chill for at least 24 hours.
