1 cup plain non-fat yogurt
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tsp fresh ginger, finely grated
1 Tbs lime juice
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 Tbs chopped cilantro, chopped

In medium bowl, stir together yogurt, garlic, ginger, lime juice, red pepper flakes, cilantro, salt and pepper. Transfer marinade to large zipper lock plastic bag, combining well. Add chicken, reseal bag and turn it over several times to thoroughly coat chicken with marinade. Refrigerate for one hour, or up to 6 hours.
Prepare gas or charcoal grill.
Remove chicken from marinade and grill over medium-hot coals, turning, for 5 - 6 minutes per side. Remove to platter and let rest for 10 minutes.
