Ingredients

Curry Powder

1 teaspoons

Chicken breast, skinless, grilled

2 individual, medium

Lemon Juice, Fresh

15 ml

0% fat natural Greek yogurt

150 g

Root Ginger

2 teaspoons

Garlic

2 clove(s), peeled and grated or crushed

Ground Cumin

½ teaspoons, level

Paprika

½ teaspoons, level

Garam Masala

1 teaspoons, level

Cayenne Pepper

½ teaspoons, level

Lemon Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoons

Mint, Fresh

1 teaspoons

Cucumber

½ individual, seedless, sliced into half moons

Instructions

  1. Mix the spices, garlic, ginger and lemon juice with ½ the yogurt in a small bowl (reserve the rest for the sauce). Make 3 diagonal slits into each chicken breast (be careful not to go all the way through). Coat the chicken with the spiced yogurt, cover and leave to marinade (at least 30 mins but up to 24 hours).
  2. Preheat the oven to 220°C, Gas Mark 7.
  3. Make the Yogurt Sauce by mixing together all the ingredients in a small bowl, then put in the fridge to chill.
  4. Once the oven is hot, remove the chicken from its marinade and place on a roasting rack inside a pan. Bake for 12 mins on each side, or until cooked through, turning once. Serve with the Yogurt Sauce and a big salad.

Notes

Add 75g cooked brown rice per person or serve with cauliflower rice, but remember to check the SmartPoints.
