The yogurt creates a creamy coating while the saffron adds plenty of flavor and a distinctive yellow color. GOOD TO KNOW: Using fat-free yogurt saves you 8 grams of fat but still gives you the calcium boost. Serve this dish with a side of whole-grain rice for extra fiber.
- 1 1⁄2 cups Greek yogurt or 1 1⁄2 cups plan whole-milk yogurt
- 1 teaspoon saffron thread, crushed
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 4 (6 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- cooking spray
- Preheat broiler. Combine 1 1/2 cups yogurt, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, a pinch of saffron, and garlic in a large bowl. Add chicken, tossing to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil for 10 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through and the surface is browned.
