Hot and cold are opposites that attract when it comes to flavors.

Here, we’re talking about cooling Greek yogurt and spicy chili powder, which, combined, create a tasty way to kick up those pieces of chicken before you throw them on the grill.

No grill? You could also marinate your chicken and then bake it or throw it in pan on the stove.
