  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup plain low fat yogurt
  • 1 cup packed cilantro, leaves and stems
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped red onion
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Pineapple Salsa



Step 1

Cut each chicken breast in half. One at a time, place chicken pieces in a sealable plastic bag; remove air from bag, seal and pound chicken to an even 1/2-inch thick. Place all pieces in bag, set aside.

Place yogurt, cilantro, red onion, garlic, salt and pepper in blender; blend until smooth; stir in lime juice. Pour marinade over chicken, seal bag and refrigerate 3 to 8 hours.

Place oil in fry pan, heat to shimmering; remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade); scrape off excess marinade and place chicken in fry pan. Sear 4-6 minutes or until underside is browned; turn pieces over, salt and pepper to taste; spoon 1/2-cup fresh salsa to the sides of chicken, cover pan and cook an additional 4-5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and pineapple is caramelized. Serve chicken with your favorite green vegetable, brown rice, additional Pineapple Salsa and a cold glass of milk!
