Recipe Swap: Grilled Tandoori Chicken

Time for another Recipe Swap! The theme for this month was Secret Recipe Club style. The idea is to throw your name in the hat, and you are given a blog in return. From that blog, you must pick a recipe of your choice and post it by the deadline. I received the blog Nicole of Prevention RD. Nicole has some wonderful and healthy recipes on her blog, and I was very torn between a few. However, I have a  recipe for Channa Masala that I have been waiting to make, and when I came across her recipe for Grilled Tandoori Chicken I was sold.  In addition to going perfectly with my side dish, I wanted a grill recipe because the weather has been so beautiful this week. This chicken does not disappoint! The chicken is juicy, flavorful, and full of spice. Another recipe I have my eye on are her Oven Fried Pickles....yum! Stop over at Nicole's blog and have a peak at all the delicious recipes.


1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup packed cilantro
1 heaping tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 6 oz each


In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients except for the chicken. Mix till smooth. Pour in the yogurt mixture and stir to coat completely. Refrigerate for several hours. Preheat grill to medium-low heat and oil the grates (the yogurt mixture may stick). Grill the chicken for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through, turning only once. Remove from the grill and serve.
