Ginger & Lemon Grilled Chicken

Looking for a simple & delicious summer recipe?  I think this one fits the bill.  I like making a batch of this Ginger & Lemon Grilled Chicken to use throughout the week.  I’ll throw it on salad greens, in a whole wheat tortilla with arugula and tomatoes, or on some rice with veggies.  Enjoy!

Ginger & Lemon Grilled Chicken
Serves 6

1 cup plan yogurt, whisked until smooth
1 T Cumin
1 T Garam Masala
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 4-inch piece of fresh ginger, minced (fresh makes all the difference)
Salt, to taste
Juice of 2 lemons (again, fresh makes all the difference)
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 lbs chicken (I use about a lb of the chicken tenderloins since we don’t need 2 lbs of chicken)

Mix all the ingredients in a pie dish, add chicken and coat.  Marinade for 2-3 hours.  Grill for 5-6 minutes.  We do ours on our little George Foreman and it comes out perfectly!

  1. Sounds tasty, but then everything tastes better after being cooked on a George Foreman grill. Just ask Michael Scott.
