Directions:
Pierce chicken breasts several times with the tines of a fork and set aside. In large bowl combine yogurt and all of the spices and mix well. 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.

When ready to cook, prepare and preheat grill. Remove chicken from marinade and cook on grill for about 15 minutes until thoroughly cooked, turning once during cooking time. You can also cook the chicken on a dual contact indoor grill, for 5-7 minutes until thoroughly cooked.

Personal Notes:
Chicken takes on a velvety texture when marinated in this spicy yogurt mixture. If you can marinate it overnight, do so; otherwise about an hour will be fine (in the fridge!)
