Ingredients

    Tandoori Chicken

    6 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
    1/2 cup plain n/f greek yogurt
    2 cloves crushed garlic
    4 tsp grated fresh ginger
    1 Tbsp paprika
    1 1/2 tsp cumin
    1 1/2 tsp coriander
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    salt
    black pepper

    Tzaziki sauce

    1 cup n/f fat yogurt ( I like greek, but it's very thick. Reg is fine)
    3 cloves of garlic, crushed to a paste
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 6 inch cucumber, seeded, peeled, and minced
    2 tsp lemon juice
    black pepper

Directions

Put chicken breasts and next 9 ingredients in a large zip-lock bag and massage for a couple of minutes to mix well. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Remove from marinade and grill on a hot grill until juices run clear, turning once. About 15 minutes.

Mix all the ingredients for the tzaziki sauce together in a bowl when you marinate the chicken. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

To serve, slice the cooked breast cross-wise into three pieces and spoon about 1/4 cup of the tzaziki across it. Good served with roasted cauliflower and a chopped greek salad w/ balsamic vinaigrette.

    This was amazing!! I started the chicken marinade and made the tzaziki sauce the night before. All I had to do when I got hoem from work was grill the chicken. I served with cous cous and some raw cut veggies, which i also dipped in the tzaziki sauce. Delicious! - 9/24/08

    This chicken dish is outstanding. I used another Tziziki recipe though. Other than that, I followed the directions exactly accept instead of grilling, I baked it at 350 for 30 minutes covered and 10 more minutes uncovered. Delicious! - 1/4/12

    This was so good. I grilled some eggplant slices (which tasted amazing with the sauce btw) and served with brown rice. I will make this again. How soon is too soon? - 11/13/09

    This is the best Tandoori chicken recipe I have tried. Not only is it healthy, but extremely flavorful. We had couscous and home made roasted bell pepper hummas to go with it and it was a huge success for the whole family. - 3/7/11
