Grilled Indian Spiced Chicken with Tomato-Yogurt Sauce

I cannot believe it has been well over a week since I last posted. I have been so busy with work and life that I haven't had time for things like grocery shopping or meal planning. But, things are beginning to calm down again. I have a couple leftover grilling posts from the end of the summer and then I cannot wait to get into fall foods like pumpkin bread and soups! We are also working on our upstairs bathroom renovation so I hope to have those before and after pictures up next month.

This is a delicious grilled chicken with a wonderful Indian tomato-yogurt sauce. Perfect for a fancy way to serve humdrum chicken over rice. The Indian flavors are warm and inviting mixed with the grilled chicken.

Ingredients:
Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
Salt and pepper

Rice
1 1/2 cup brown rice
3 cups chicken broth
1 clove of garlic, minced

Sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic
14 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 heaping tbsp garam masala
2/3 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
Salt and pepper, to taste
Cilantro, for garnish

Directions:
Make the rice by adding chicken broth, garlic, and rice to a pot and cooking according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, heat the grill to medium-high heat. Rub all sides of the chicken breasts with garam masala, salt and pepper. Grill the chicken on both sides until done. Transfer the cooked chicken from the grill to a plate and cover loosely with foil while you make the sauce.

To make the sauce, begin by heating the oil over medium heat and then add the onions. Saute for about 5 minutes until just beginning to brown. Add the garlic and stir, cooking for 1 minute longer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the tomatoes and garam masala. Stir occasionally until heated through. Add yogurt and remove from heat.

Serve the chicken over the rice and top with the sauce. Garnish with fresh cilantro.

I absolutely love any sauce containing yogurt - we cook with it all the time. This looks like a lean, healthy meal for the warm weather that's headed towards us.

That looks awesome! An easy weeknight dinner when you want something a little more interesting. I often want to cook Indian food, but get a little intimidated by the real deal. I love that this recipe gives a nice shortcut!
