Indian-Style Broiled Chicken Recipe
A co-worker used to bring this delicious chicken to my part-time job to share with us every winter. It was a bright spot in my life working full-time and part-time.
The yogurt-based marinade is the secret to these juicy and tender chicken breasts. I like to serve with heated red curry paste in a separated dish, just in case more heat is wanted. This spicy dish can be served as an entree, just add a side dish or served as appetizers like my co-worker friend used to do. This recipe is easily doubled if serving a crowd.
Indian-Style Broiled Chicken
1 cup plain yogurt
2 or 3 large cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon grated gingerroot, if no grater, mince very fine
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 skinless split chicken breasts, equaling 2 to 3 pounds*
1 small jar of red curry paste*
Make a yogurt marinade by mixing all ingredients, except chicken and red curry paste.
Place cut chicken pieces in a dish, cover with marinade and refrigerate overnight or at least 10 to 12 hours for maximum flavor.
Pre-heat your oven broiler for 15 minutes or so. Before placing chicken on broiler, spray it with cooking spray to keep fowl from sticking to rack.
Place marinated chicken on broiler rack and broil 7 to 15 minutes, depending on thickness of each chicken side. Broil until juices run clear when pierced.
Makes 7 to 8 servings
Serve with rice (white or brown) and steamed asparagus; creamy mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables or hot buttered egg noodles and whole kernel corn.
*Cut into smaller pieces if serving as an appetizer. Serve with torn pieces of Roti bread.
*I use Roland brand red curry paste, it is wonderful for so many dishes. This brand comes in a small 6.08 ounce jar. If using with the above recipe, use 1/2 jar readd curry paste, add the same amount of plain yogurt, mix together and heat until warm. Serve on the side.
Make clean up easier by placing aluminum foil under the broiler rack.

I have shared this title before, it is one of my favorite 'go to' cookbooks because it has a good "Foods that fight common ailments" section as well as recipes.
