This Recipe:
Start to Finish
5 min
5 minutes, plus ½-2 hours marinating
about 15 minutes

1 cup coarsely chopped white onion

½ cup plain yogurt (regular or lowfat)

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon mild curry powder

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 2-inch chunks

Serving ideas: Greek yogurt, Turkish salad, Basmati Pilaf or steamed brown or white basmati rice with peas, fresh or steamed vegetables, whole wheat pita.


1.  In the small bowl of a food processor (or in a blender), puree the onion, yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and curry powder. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the chicken pieces. Cover the bowl and let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.

2.  Preheat the broiler or light the grill. To broil, line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on the baking sheet. Spray or brush the rack lightly with oil.  (Alternatively, use a broiling pan). If desired, thread the chicken on skewers. Broil or grill, watching closely, until browned in places and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Serve hot.
