This is such a yummy chicken dish - different to me. Nice and light and fresh! Found on the internet. (easily halved recipe - although I make the same amount of sauce and serve with noodles)

Thank Jovi for a terrific and quick option for chicken breast with no marinating time. At the poster's suggestion, I made 2 breasts but used the spices and sauce ingredients for 4. I didn't have banana yogurt so I mixed 3 tablespoons of mashed banana with about 1/2 cup of plain yogurt. It was a bit too much and next time I will use less or skip the banana altogether. That said I loved the way the seasonings combined with the citrus. And the yogurt did give it all a nice creamy finish. (Oh, and I used olive oil for the butter to keep the cholesterol count down a bit.) Thanks.
