Indian-Style Yoghurt Chicken

Indian cuisine is my favorite. I love the flavors from hot to sweet. For me chicken and lamb are the best meats to use in Indian recipes. This yogurt chicken dish was so easy to put together and the yogurt made the chicken so moist.  Yum yum.

Indian-Style Yoghurt Chicken

chicken fillets (boneless breasts)
1/2 cup yogurt
1 tsp tandoori spices
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/8 tsp hot chili powder
1 garlic clove
1/4 tsp salt

*This was  a recipe for two. 
Flatten the chicken before placing them in a shallow dish. Dump 1/2 cup yoghurt in a bowl. Feel free to use low-fat yogurt.  Grate 1 large garlic clove and add it to the yogurt. And curry powder. I must have curry powder in my marinade, this is 1/2 a tsp. Spike the marinade with 1/8 tsp hot chili powder and 1/4 tsp salt. In hindsight, I could have added a pinch of ground cumin as well. Pour the marinade all over the chicken, get some on both sides. Cover the tray with foil and let the chicken marinade for at least one hour. Preferably longer.  Fire up your grill. Get it really hot, lightly oil it and toss the chicken on top and grill it for about 5 minutes on each side. Of course this depends on the thickness of your chicken
