Grilled Chicken with Spicy Ginger Marinade
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 cup plain non-fat yogurt
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely grated
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
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.
Remove chicken from marinade and grill over medium-hot coals,
turning, for 5 - 6 minutes per side. Remove to platter and let rest
for 10 minutes.
If desired, slice breasts on the diagonal into strips and arrange on
platter. Garnish with lime wedges and additional chopped cilantro.
