Yogurt and Tamarind Marinated Grilled Chicken

Yogurt and Tamarind Marinated Grilled Chicken
Serves: 4 Ready In: 30 mins

Ingredient

Ingredients: • 3/8 cup plain yogurt • 1/2 tablespoon tamarind paste (Asian supermarket) • 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped • 1/8 cup canola oil • 3/4 tablespoon salt • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper • 1/2 tablespoon garam massala • 1 1/8 lbs boneless chicken breasts • 1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges (optional)

Method

• In a large mixing bowl combine the yogurt, tamarind, garlic, canola, salt, and cayenne and garam massala. • Add the chicken, mix and make sure the chicken is covered with the marinade. • Cover and marinate for a minimum of 4 hours but 8 is preferred. • Preheat a grill, barbeque or stovetop cast-iron grill to high heat (if doing this indoors makes sure you switch on your exhaust fan, there will be smoke whilst grilling on the high heat. (Doing this in a pan does not work for me; it makes a mess and does not brown so well, grill or barbeque gave me a better result). • Grill the breasts 4 minutes on each side, then again 4 minutes on each side. • Check or the thighs are done, if still pink continue grilling. • Serve with the lemon wedges
