  • 1 T garam masala
  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 4 skinless free-range chicken breasts
  • 1 cup chopped mint
  • 2 fresh chillies, chopped
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt
  • fresh coriander, for serving
  • lemon wedges, for serving

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Combine the garam masala and yoghurt, then add crushed garlic and season to taste.

Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks.

Add to the yoghurt to coat evenly, leave for 30 minutes before spreading on a baking tray to cook for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through.

If you want to add them to a hot pan with a little olive oil to colour at the end do so for about 30 seconds maximum.

To make the mint dressing, blend the mint with the chillies, the lemon juice and ½ cup yoghurt.

Serve the hot chicken with the mint dressing, fresh coriander and lemon wedges.
