Yogurt-Marinated Chicken

jrubino | Delicious Living

Featuring yogurt in the chicken coating and dipping sauce, this Indian-spiced dinner dish offers a good dose of calcium. Prep tip: Increase heat by adjusting spice amounts to taste. Serving tip: Great with brown rice.

  1. Place all spices (cumin through kosher salt) in a shallow dish and mix thoroughly. Place yogurt in a separate shallow dish. Rub chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon oil, then coat each side with spice mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Dip in yogurt to coat. Place chicken in a glass dish, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
  2. To make dipping sauce, place all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Chill for 2—3 hours.
  3. Preheat a grill pan or stovetop grill to medium-high (you can also use the broiler). Cook chicken for 7—10 minutes per side, until juices run clear. Serve with dipping sauce on the side; garnish with green pepper and red onion slices.
