While looking for a new marinade to use on chicken, try yogurt-based marinade. Wouldn't you rather have a marinade with ingredients that are all pronounceable and familiar? The family may be a little skeptical (but they don't need to know what they are eating, just that it is good), but if you are adventurous give it a try. The chicken should come out very moist and with delicious flavor! Your whole family will enjoy it and cut up on your salads for a quick lunch the next day. Let us know what you think!
1/2 cup plain Greek style yogurt
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Agave Nectar
1 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger root
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin
6 organic chicken breast halves
|Look for Greek Style Yogurt that is high|
protein and contains no artificial
sweeteners or added sugars.
1. In a large resealable plastic bag, or large container with a lid, combine the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, oil, Agave and seasonings. Mix well and add chicken. Seal bag or container and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
2. Before grilling, drain and discard marinade. Grill as normally would.
Tip: You may want to coat the grill rack with non-stick spray before starting the grill to prevent sticking.
