Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Marinade

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

  • Whisk together all marinade ingredients. Place marinade in a large zip lock bag and add chicken breasts. Allow to marinate at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade. Cook chicken on the grill over medium heat 5-6 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  • Suggested serving options: cooked rice, lime wedges for drizzling, extra cilantro, indian flatbread (naan) and mango chutney

Notes

Coriander and Garam Masala are spices you can find at most markets, I know I've found them at Target and Harmons - if they aren't with the regular spices, try the Asian section of the market.
