Number of Servings: 2


    3/4 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
    (trimmed of visible fat if you can)

    1 cup low fat buttermilk
    2 tbs curry powder (hot or sweet, I use a mix of both)
    1 tbs ground coriander
    1 tbs ground cumin
    1 tbs garam masala
    1 tbs lemon zest.


Drop marinade ingredients into a bag, and mix up..
Add Chicken thighs.
Seal bag and stick in fridge for at least one hour - more is better (I will start it in the am before heading out to work)
(note- if you can't get buttermilk, low fat plain yogurt can be substitured easily)

When you're ready... grill, roast, broil the chicken til done.

NOTE:If you cut the chicken into chunks - you can broil those and they make nice tidbits for football parties or other events where "man food' is needed. :D

It's great served cold the next day in a pita w/ some lettuce, tomato,c ucumbers and some yogurt
