Fragrant Grilled Chicken

Scent is an important part of flavor, and this dish takes full advantage of that fact to reward your nose well before it rewards your tongue. The long marination time on this chicken leads to robust flavor you’ll crave. Wrap the chicken in a warm, fresh pita and top with cucumber to make it a meal.

Tip: For a recipe like this, quality of spice matters. Pick up some cumin seeds from your local spice seller and toast them in a dry frying pan over medium heat for about a minute before grinding them for the best cumin flavor.


  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. minced ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. turmeric
  • ¼ cup plain, nonfat yogurt
  • 1½ lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  1. Whisk together everything but chicken. Toss the chicken with the mixture and marinate for 8 hours.
  2. Over a grill set to high heat, grill the chicken until cooked through or meat thermometer read 165ºF (3-4 minutes per side).
