Let's get grilling

1 In a large mixing bowl, combine the Aleppo pepper with a tablespoon of warm water. Stir and set aside for at least 5–10 minutes. Add the yogurt, olive oil, vinegar, tomato paste, garlic, and lemon juice and zest. Stir well and season to taste with salt and pepper.
2 Season the chicken with salt and pepper as well, and then add to bowl; toss to coat well. Cover and let marinate for at least one hour, up to overnight.
3 Build a charcoal fire for direct grilling using Kingsford® Charcoal. Preheat the grill to 450°F, and brush grill grates with oil. Remove chicken from the marinade and place on the grate. Grill for about 5–7 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with extra lemons, for squeezing. Enjoy!
