I’m back to eating my most favorite breakfast/lunch/dinner meal ever, plain yogurt with frosted mini wheats. Which means that I have quite a bit of yogurt hanging around my house.
After spending all day Saturday on my couch watching Food Network/PBS cooking shows, I decided to try a yogurt-marinated chicken meal. The chicken turned out delicious; the grilled radicchio, not so much. So, here you are, the good part of the meal: yogurt marinated chicken with garlic and ginger.
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 large or 2 small chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
Start by cutting up your chicken into thin strips. Using a microplane or cheese grater, grate the garlic and ginger. (It was at this point that I discovered that I am violently allergic to fresh ginger…) Combine yogurt, garlic, ginger, and mustard along with salt and pepper and marinate chicken in the fridge for 1-4 hours.
Scrape off most of the marinade and sautee in cast iron until fully cooked. It will be tender and delicious. Serve with fresh rice and sauteed vegetables if you have them (bell peppers, onions, and tomatoes would be delicious).
