  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 green onions, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, quartered
  • 1 piece (1-inch) peeled ginger root, coarsely chopped (or 1 teaspoon ground ginger)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 chicken breasts (bone-in)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander or parsley

  2. In a food processor, combine yogurt, tomato paste, green onions, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, salt and cayenne pepper; puree until smooth.
  3. Arrange chicken in a shallow dish; coat with yogurt mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 1 day ahead. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking.
