Ingredients You'll Need
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
1 red onion, sliced into ¼ thick rings
1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Juice from 1 lemon
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
¼ teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon curry powder
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Garlic Yogurt Sauce:
1 (7-ounce) container 2% Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/8 tsp kosher salt
Pound each breast to an even thickness, about ½-inch thick.
In a bowl combine olive oil and lemon juice. Add the garlic, cumin, paprika, turmeric, curry powder, cinnamon, red pepper, salt and black pepper and whisk.
Pour the marinade and into the bag with the chicken and red onion rings, massaging it to evenly coat. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 1 hour to overnight.
In a small bowl combine the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice and salt. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Over medium-high heat, grill the chicken and onion rings for 3 minutes or until it no longer sticks to the grill. Turn the chicken and grill an additional 3-4 minutes. Allow the chicken to rest then slice it thinly, across the grain. Top each breast with 2 tablespoons sauce and a sprinkle of parsley.
Serve with grilled onions, cold sliced cucumbers or over brown rice or whole wheat couscous.
