Spiced yogurt chicken

More playing with the samples from Total Yoghurt and I have created a savoury dish this time, ideal to serve with a salad or flavoured  rice or couscous You could even cook it on the barbeque if the weather is playing ball.. The spicing in this dish is very much to personal taste so feel free to add or take away as you see fit , many herbs and spices would work equally as well as the paprika and cinnamon. I used the 0% fat yogurt in this recipe and it worked really well, I had no problems with it splitting, you just create a lovely coating which tenderises your chicken  and helps it keep moist whilst being grilled.



Ingredients
  • 2 free range skinless chicken breast 
  • 1/2 cup of Total Greek Yogurt 0%
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • juice and zest of a lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic - crushed
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Method
  • Place all your ingredients in a large freezer bag
  • Mush all together and leave in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes
  • Preheat your grill
  • Remove the chicken breasts from the bag and place under the grill, discard the excess marinade
  • Grill on both sides until slightly charred , this takes about 8 mins per side but does depend on the thickness of your chicken, just check the chicken is cooked through before serving
