    The Georgian plum sauce recipe given in Salt Sugar Smoke is updated and, I think, improved.

    I also made the yogurt-marinated chicken and served it with my own Georgian plum sauce (tkemali). I wasn't able to marinade the chicken the full time called for, but it still came out juicy with a nice kick (used the on-line recipe).

    I took what I wanted from this recipe- the yogurt marinated chicken. This is a great tenderizer and the pieces are always moist. I thought the spices could use some rounding out (only cinnamon and cayenne) so I subbed Lebanese Baharat which is cinnamony. The yogurt predominates, next time I will add a lot more spice.
