As mentioned in my latest health post, I have been eating a lot of this recipe. It’s quick, simple, and so tasty. Hope you enjoy it and make it your own.
1 lbs. chicken, cubed
3 tbsp. natural (plain) low-fat yogurt
1.5 tsp. garam masala
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. coriander (cilantro)
1 fresh green chili, chopped
Mix the spices, yogurt, lemon juice, coriander and chili together. Add thawed chicken and stir. Marinate in the fridge for an hour. Preheat grill (broiler) to very hot, then lower to medium. Put chicken into a flameproof pan lined with foil. Grill for 15-20 minutes until tender and fully cooked, turning chicken twice. Remove.
I like to eat it over rice with cabbage and yogurt. You could also stuff it into a “naan pocket”, as the original recipe states, and add cabbage, tomato wedges, and onion rings. I also tend to eat it over salad, using yogurt as the dressing over a mountain of greens. I suggest playing around with the recipe. As I usually forget to buy the green chili, I’ve found that it tastes just as great without it!
