yogurt-marinated grilled chicken

Now that you have tried the chicken tikka masala that I posted last month, you are sure to have garam masala spice on hand. So here is another recipe to make with it. We made this chicken a few weeks ago and it was delicious! So tender, juicy, and flavorful. What more can you ask for? Oh, well it's easy too. Enjoy!

Yogurt-Marinated Grilled Chicken (from Bon Appetit)

8 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 3 pounds)
2 cups plain whole-milk yogurt (I used lowfat and it worked great)
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves and stems
1/2 large onion, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup olive oil plus more for brushing
6 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon garam masala
2 teaspoons kosher salt plus more for seasoning
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 2"piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

Working with one chicken breast at a time, put chicken between 2 sheets of waxed paper and pound to 1/2" thickness. Transfer chicken breasts to a resealable plastic bag.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour yogurt mixture over chicken, seal bag, and turn to coat. Marinate chicken in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Build a medium fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to medium-high. Brush grill grates with oil. Scrape excess marinade off chicken; season with salt. Grill chicken, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes per side.
