Sprinkle the dash of salt over the diced cucumber and set on paper towels for 15-30 minutes to drain the liquid. Mix the cucumber and cumin with the yogurt; chill if desired.
Flatten the boneless, skinless thighs; cut each in half to form somewhat uniform shapes. Sprinkle with the curry powder to coat. Drizzle the olive oil to coat. (NOTE: don't be afraid to add cayenne or other spices to the curry powder at this point; tailor the powder to your taste!)
Preheat gas grill to medium; rub oil or spray nonstick grill spray on grates. Add chicken to grill; sear for 2-4 minutes, and then turn heat to LOW. (if using a charcoal grill, use indirect heat). Cover and grill for 8 minutes; turn over and continue cooking until chicken is fully cooked, 15-20 minutes on LOW. Turn grill to high to sear the chicken. Remove from grill, cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
Here's where you get to be creative: serve chicken over rice with vegetables, with the yogurt sauce on the side. OR serve on a toasted roll with the yoghurt, and add some more cucumber slices for a nice chicken sandwich. Read the reviews to see how others have prepared this recipe, and enjoy!
Te grilling times given might overcook the chicken, depending on your grill. Adjust your times accordingly. Whatever you do, know that juicy chicken is often a result of the "low and slow" method of grilling, but you still need higher heat to start, for a good sear on the outside.
