Perfect for BBQ weekends, this Aleppo Pepper Chicken from Turkey is to die for! 

Serves: 6-8


  • 3 tablespoons Aleppo Maras pepper 
  • 2 cups plain whole-milk Greek-style yogurt (16 ounces)

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 10-12 garlic cloves, flattened and skins removed
  • 2 unpeeled lemons, sliced into thin rounds.
  • 4 pounds skinless boneless chicken thighs
  1. In a large bowl combine the 3 tablespoons Aleppo pepper with 2 tablespoons warm water. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes for the water to be absorbed. (if using red pepper flakes and paprika, combine 4 teaspoons of each in the bowl with 4 tablespoons warm water)

  3. Next mix in the garlic and lemon slices. Add the chicken and stir to fully combine all ingredients.
  4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour (and up to a day)
  5. Preheat the barbecue to medium-high heat. Rub oil over the grates. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken about 6 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
  6. Serve with grilled lemons and garlic. Enjoy!
