Spiced Yogurt Chicken and Street Corn

I love street corn! Heck I could just eat a big bowl of corn as a meal. It’s always been one of my favorites growing up. Then make it as street corn or as come call it elote corn and you take it to a whole new level.

The spice yogurt marinade I made for the chicken is INCREDIBLE! You can marinate anywhere from 30 minutes to up to 8 hours. I did 4 hours and it was DELISH!

Spiced Yogurt Chicken and Street Corn

This chicken was amazing! It came out super tender and juicy on the inside with a slight crisp on the outside from cooking them in the air fryer. I made a delicious mild spiced yogurt mixture, scored the chicken and marinated for 4 hours. SO GOOD!!

  • Pat dry your chicken breasts and score to make slits both ways diagonal.
  • Mix your spicy yogurt ingredients in a large mixing bowl
  • Add your chicken to your bowl and mix in with your yogurt mixture until all parts of the chicken is covered. You can also put the mix and chicken in a large ziploc.
  • Cover your big bowl and place into the fridge. Marinate for 30 minutes to 8 hours.
  • At this time, you can start dicing up your veggies for street corn and set aside.
  • Once you are ready to start cooking your chicken, set your air fryer to 400.
  • Place your chicken in to the air fryer two at a time and cook for 15 minutes. Time varys depending on your fryer. Flip half way or when your fryer beeps at you like mine does.
  • Measure out your rice according to what appliance you are using and start cooking.
  • In a large mixing bowl, make your street corn and set aside.
  • Once your chicken is cooked, take it out and place on a cookie sheet while the next 3 cook.
  • When your rice is done, assemble your bowls!
  • Slice your chicken breast any way you wish and add to your bowls.
  • I will heat these up at work for 2 minutes, stir and heat another 45 seconds. I like to add light sour cream to mine when I eat it! ENJOY!
