RECIPE: Yummy Yogurt Marinated Chicken
Last week (during the Recipe Exchange and Cooking Forum blackout :-) I tried this recipe that I've had saved for years! It was delicious and I thought I'd share it. I copied the recipe here exactly as written - I'll just mention that I cooked it in my stovetop grill pan and I used fresh ginger - I don't care for ground ginger except in gingerbread! Between the mincing the garlic and the fresh ginger and the lemon, the house smelled so good even while the chicken was in the fridge marinating.

This is really good, and really easy. The yogurt mixture really sticks to
the chicken and makes it tasty and tender. Keep in mind it has to marinate
for at least 8 hours.
8 hours 25 minutes (8 hrs prep, 25 min cooking)
1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
3 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger or 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
4 to 6 boneless chicken breasts
1 Combine first nine ingredients,and pour into a large ziploc bag.
2 Add the chicken to the bag, seal, and turn bag to coat chicken
3 Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
4 I think overnight is best.
5 You can grill over indirect medium heat until done.
6 But I used my Showtime Rotisserie.
7 If you have one, (and if you don't, they're very cool), use the
flat basket and cook for about 25 minutes.
