Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with vegetable oil spray. In a small bowl, combine the curry powder, cumin, onion/garlic salt, and cayenne. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with the curry mixture. Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet with the smooth side up. Lightly spray with vegetable oil spray. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.

Meanwhile, for the cucumber raita, grate the cucumber. Put in a colander and sprinkle with the salt. Let drain for at least 5 minutes. Squeeze the cucumber to remove excess liquid. In a medium bowl, whisk the yogurt until smooth. Stir in the remaining ingredients except the pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve as an accompaniment to the chicken/

    This chicken is moist and flavorful! I love the Raita to go along with it. It's really 'cooling'. Yummy recipe! - 6/21/09

  • I thought the raita was sour and didn't compliment the chicken well. It was okay, but I won't make it again. - 5/3/12

  • It's on the spicy side - but I loved it. :) Added cilantro to the raita and left out the ginger. Yummy....
