Recipe by zeldaz51

A not-spicy and citrusy riff on Tandoori. Do NOT use lemon-flavored yogurt for this, as it's loaded with sugar and is meant as a dessert. Not a good idea. Adapted from a recipe in "Living the G. I. Diet". This can also be baked in a 400 degree oven on a greased rack over a baking sheet for about 25 to 40 minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together the oil, garlic, zest, juice, herb(s), salt, and pepper. Place chicken and marinade in a sturdy Ziploc bag, add marinade, massage to coat meat, close, and, refrigerate at least 2 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat a grill pan or an outdoor grill and grease it lightly. Remove the excess marinade from the chicken and discard it. Place the chicken breasts on the greased surface over medium-high heat. Close the lid and cook, turning once, until no longer pink inside, about 12 minutes.
