Tandoori Chicken

I had a good idea for a post today, but unfortunately, I forgot it before I could get to my computer.   If it comes back to me, I’ll post it tomorrow.

Here’s a substitute post.   Great for that George Foreman or other indoor grill!

Tandoori Chicken

INGREDIENTS:
• 3/4 cup coarsely chopped onion
• 1 teaspon coarsely chopped ginger
• 2 garlic cloves, peeled
• 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
• 1 Tbsp lemon juice
• 1 tsp. paprika
• 1 tsp. cumin
• 1 tsp. coriander
• 1/2 tsp. salt
• 1/2 tsp. chili powder
• 1/4 tsp. black pepper
• Dash of nutmeg
• 4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Cooking spray

METHOD:
1. Place first three ingredients in a food processor; process until finely chopped.  Add yogurt and the next 8 ingredients (yogurt through nutmeg); pulse 4 times or until blended.

2. Make 3 diagonal cuts 1/4″ deep across top of each chicken breast half.  Combine chicken and yogurt mixture in a large zip-top plastic bad.  Seal and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.

3. Prepare grill or broiler.

4. Remove chicken breast from bag; discard marinade.  Place chicken on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is done.
