I had the same issue as a couple other of your readers did as well. With having way too much liquid in the pan when I was trying to brown the chicken. I noticed in your video you do not have all that liquid. Do you strain your yogurt and Pat it dry to avoid all the excess liquid? Can you help me with this this was my only problem with the recipe. We absolutely loved it!
