Red pepper flakes, garlic, ginger, lime juice, and yogurt create a spicy marinade that helps to tenderize the chicken while infusing it with flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain non-fat yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 1 Tbs lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tbs chopped cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Directions

  • In medium bowl, stir together yogurt, garlic, ginger, lime juice, red pepper flakes, cilantro, salt and pepper. Transfer marinade to large zipper lock plastic bag, combining well. Add chicken, reseal bag and turn it over several times to thoroughly coat chicken with marinade. Refrigerate for one hour, or up to 6 hours.
  • Prepare gas or charcoal grill.
