Minted Yogurt Chicken

Joined Feb 1, 2007
1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving
1 cup plain yogurt
½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp each salt & pepper
1 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
Ground sumac (optional)

Cut the chicken, crosswise and slightly on the bias, in half-inch thick slices.

Prepare the marinade. Combine the yogurt, turmeric, salt and pepper in a plastic zipper bag. Add the chicken. Allow to marinate in the fridge at least eight hours.

On a rectangle of greased foil lay out chicken slices in a single layer. Sprinkle with the sumac if using. Seal package well.

Cook over hot coals, about five minutes per side.
