Disclaimer: the grams I’ve listed manually after each ingredient are accurate for a single recipe, but they will not multiply if you choose the 2x or 3x option. Please make sure and multiply on your own!


  • 2 lbs Chicken Breasts (896 g)
  • 6 cloves Garlic, minced (or frozen cubes)
  • 3 Tbsp White Balsamic Vinegar (45 g)
  • 3 Tbsp Non-Fat Greek Yogurt (45 g)
  • 1 Tbsp Honey (22 g)
  • 1 Tbsp Chipotle Chili Powder, or blended chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 2 Tsp Onion Powder
  • 2 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tsp Cumin
  • 2 Tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 2 Tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Black Pepper


  • Trim any fat or gross stuff off of your chicken. Butterfly or pound if you prefer thinner breasts for a faster cook-time! Place chicken in a large dish or resealable bag.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients for the marinade and pour over the chicken. Marinate in the fridge overnight, or leave at room-temp for 30-60 min.
  • Pre-heat and carefully oil your grill. Sprinkle chicken with additional fresh pinch of kosher salt and a little cracked pepper. Cook over high heat for about 3-4 minutes per side (if you've butterflied) or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165. Slice against the grain and enjoy in all meals!


We love this chicken chopped up for tacos, salads, Mexican rice bowls, and pretty much anything else!
For tenderloins: Of course, this would also be great with tenderloins! A little more trimming, but so quick to cook and always more tender in my opinion. Just cook for about 3 minutes per side.
If you’re dairy-free, just skip the yogurt. I just like it as a way to pull everything together without needing oil.
