- In a large mixing bowl, combine oil, vinegar, yogurt, ginger, garlic, all ground spices, and salt. Stir to create a marinade. Toss the chicken and onions and mix until it's well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours.
- Preheat the broiler to high with a rack positioned a few inches below the heating element. Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a metal cooling rack. Arrange the marinated chicken and onions with a little space in between each piece for even browning. Cook until the chicken is cooked through and the onions are slightly charred, about 15 minutes.
- Cook the RightRice according to the packaging instructions. Serve the chicken on top of the rice garnished with cilantro leaves and lime wedges.
