Tender Herbed Chicken Recipe

"Whoever said that all chicken recipes taste the same just hasn't experimented enough," comments Margaret Shauers of Great Bend, Kansas. "For tender chicken with a refreshing herb flavor, marinate the meat overnight in this quick-to-fix yogurt mixture."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon aniseed
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (2 pounds)

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container, combine the first eight ingredients. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight, turning once.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Place chicken on a rack over a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until juices run clear. Yield: 8 servings.
