Yogurt Marinated Chicken


  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt, I used Greek, but you can use regular even fat-free
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Juice of one lemon (you can also use lime)
  • Zest of one lemon (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 4 to 6 bonless chicken breasts (I used tenders)
In a ziploc bag, combine the first 9 ingredients. Add the chicken to the bag, seal and move the bag around to make sure all of the chicken is covered well. Let marinate in the fridge for 8 hours or overnight. Broil, rotisserie or grill till done.

This marinade make the chicken very moist and tender. I always marinate it overnight for best results. Good hot and cold.
