Number of Servings: 4


    1-1/4 cups plain yogurt
    1 kirby cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely chopped
    2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
    1 tablespoon garam masala spice blend (such as McCormick)
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    4 bone-in, skinless chicken breasts (about 3 pounds), cut in half diagonally


1. For raita, stir together 3/4 cup yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl; set aside.

2. In another small bowl, stir together remaining 1/2 cup yogurt, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, ginger, garam masala and cayenne. Place chicken in a baking dish and spread yogurt mixture over top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes.

3. Heat gas grill to medium-high or prepare charcoal grill with medium-hot coals. Lightly coat grill with nonstick cooking spray or oil. Grill chicken, covered, about 20 minutes over direct heat, turning every 5 minutes. Then move chicken to indirect heat for 5 minutes or until internal temperature measures 160 on an instant-read thermometer. Serve with raita.

4. Broiler Method: Heat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Brush chicken with sauce and broil for about 20 minutes. Proceed from Step 3 above.
