Yogurt-Marinated Grilled Chicken

It's impossible to mess up this dish. Chicken breasts are pounded to a thin cutlet and marinated in a spiced yogurt mixture that tenderizes the meat and infuses it with flavour. A quick grill on each side leaves you with protein-rich chicken that can be served as is, or chopped and added to salads and sandwiches for an easy spring dinner.

You’ll Need

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (4–6 oz)
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • Juice of 1 lime (about 2 Tbsp)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • ¾ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp cumin

Prep and Cook

  • Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of parchment paper and pound them with a mallet or rolling pin until thin.
  • In a medium-mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Add the chicken to the bowl and toss to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1–6 hours.
  • To cook the chicken, preheat and oil the grill, and cook the chicken for 3–5 minutes per side, or until the meat is firm and cooked through.
