Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!

Notes

NOTES:
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.
