Number of Servings: 4


    4 skinless, boneless chicken breast (4 oz each)
    Juice of 1 lemon
    Kosher salt
    1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons plain low fat yogurt
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1/2 small red onion, roughly chopped
    3 cloves garlic, smashed
    1 2-inch piece ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
    4 teaspoons tomato paste
    2 teaspoons ground coriander
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
    1 3/4 teaspoons hot paprika
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
    Cooked rice, for serving (optional)


Preheat the broiler. Make shallow cuts in the chicken breasts with a sharp knife. Toss the chicken with the lemon juice and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a large bowl.
Pulse 2 tablespoons yogurt, the vegetable oil, onion, garlic, ginger, tomato paste, coriander, cumin, 11/2 teaspoons paprika and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a food processor to make a paste. Toss the chicken in the mixture and let marinate 15 minutes.
Place the chicken on a foil-lined broiler pan. Broil, turning once, until slightly charred and a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165 degrees F, 5 to 6 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, combine the remaining 1/2 cup yogurt and 1/4 teaspoon paprika, the cilantro and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Top the chicken with the yogurt sauce and serve with rice, if desired.
