Here’s another great chicken recipes for you. True to chicken’s endless versatility, this recipe can be cooked in 3 different ways.

Try cooking this recipe in all the three variations, it will make a big difference in the texture of the chicken and will almost seem like three different recipes.

You also have a choice in step 3 when it comes to chilling the marinated chicken. The longer you allow the chicken to marinate the deep the spice will soak into the chicken, resulting in a fuller flavour.

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup plain yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp. chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp. curry powder
  • 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

Method

Step 1


Pierce chicken breasts several times with the tines of a fork and set aside.

Step 2


In large bowl combine yogurt and all of the spices and mix well.

Step 3


Add the chicken to the mixture and turn so all the chicken pieces are coated. Cover and chill for at least one hour, or overnight.

I find that chilling overnight makes a big difference in the taste. The spices have much more time to really soak into the chicken and it does make a very noticeable difference in the taste.

Step 4


When ready to cook, prepare and preheat grill.

Step 1


Remove chicken from marinade and cook

When it comes to actually cooking the chicken, you have 3 choices:

1) Cook on grill for about 15 minutes until thoroughly cooked, turning once during cooking time

2) Cook the chicken on a dual contact indoor grill (eg George Foreman grill), for 5-7 minutes until thoroughly cooked. This gives the chicken a delicious ‘crispy’ layer.

3) Place the chicken on a foil-lined jelly roll pan (you need the sides to catch the juice) and bake for 30-35 minutes at  375 degrees F until chicken registers 160 degrees F.

Step 5


Let stand 5 minutes and serve.

Rob is a firm believer that a bodybuilding diet doesn’t have to based around boiled chicken and veg.
