This is a recipe I came up with for my nutrition class last quarter. I had to come up with a 3 course menu that was 1000 calories or under which must include appetizer, entree and dessert. This chicken is from the entree portion. I also made cous cous with green, yellow and red peppers, shallots and garlic to go along with chicken. It was a hit my instructor loved it.

The yogurt is part of the sauce. You just spoon it over the chicken when it is finished cooking or you can just dip the chicken in it. You can serve it cool or at room temp. Hope this helped

When does the yogurt come in to play? The recipe sounds great. Just not sure when to add the yogurt.
