Turkish Chicken

3 oz tomato paste
6 oz plain yogurt
1 tbl olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
3 tsp ground cumin
2 lbs chicken thighs

Mix first 8 ingredients together in a bowl. Put 1/3 of the mixture in a covered container and refrigerate. Pour the rest into a gallon zip-loc plastic bag together with the chicken. Seal the bag and squish it so that the marinade coats the chicken. Refrigerate overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a baking pan with cooking spray. Remove the chicken from the bag and place in the baking pan in a single layer, discarding the used marinade. Bake 15 minutes, turn over, and pour the reserved marinade on top. Bake another 15 minutes. Turn off the oven and turn on the broiler. Broil the chicken 4-5 minutes or until browned on top.
