Stir together yogurt, onion, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat with marinade. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least 8 to 10 hours.

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove chicken from marinade, letting excess drip off. Place chicken pieces on baking sheet. Discard remaining marinade. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Or, to grill chicken, preheat grill. Grill chicken over medium to medium high heat, 7 to 10 minutes per side, or until chicken is just cooked through.
