Chicken with Spiced Yogurt Marinade

2 cups plain whole milk yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium onion, minced
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon (lightly packed) saffron threads, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Two 3 1/2-pound chickens, each cut into eight pieces


In a bowl, combine the yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, onion, coriander, cumin, salt, pepper, saffron and cinnamon. Stir well to blend. Place the chicken pieces in a large glass or ceramic dish and pour the marinade on top. Let marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Light a grill. Cook the chicken pieces over a medium-hot fire, turning often, until lightly charred on both sides and just cooked through, about 10 minutes per side.
