    Spiced Paste:
    1 large garlic clove
    1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
    1 small fresh red or green chili like serrano or cayenne
    1/3 cup low-fat plain yogurt
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh gingerroot
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander seeds
    3/4 teaspoon turmeric
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves (approx 1 1/4 pounds total)
    2 teaspoons vegetable oil
    Yogurt Sauce:
    1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
    1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
    pinch cayenne


Spice Paste:
Mince garlic with salt and mash to a paste. Mince chili (including seeds for a spicier paste). Stir together with garlic paste and remaining spice paste ingredients in a bowl.
1) Cut 3 diagonal cuts about 1/4 inch deep in each chicken breast. Rub spice paste into cuts and all over chicken. Marinate chicken, covered, 30 minutes at cool room temperature.
2) Place the oil in a large frying pan and arrange chicken, leaving plenty of room between each piece.
3) Fry off for about 8 minutes on each side, until no longer pink in the middle.
4) Stir all sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Top chicken with the sauce, and serve with a green salad.
