Serves: 4


4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves



8-oz.container plain yogurt (any style)

1 oz lime juice

2 large garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon ground fenugreek

1 teaspoon ground Chinese Five Spice

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

teaspoon salt

teaspoon cayenne pepper


Balsamic Reduction

2 cups Balsamic Vinegar

1 Tbs. Sugar


Roasted Red Pepper

Blend together all ingredients to make the marinade.  Place the chicken in the marinade and let sit for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 hours covered in the refrigerator.


Place the balsamic vinegar and the sugar in a small stainless saucepan on very low heat. Reduce the sugar-vinegar mixture until it becomes the consistency of syrup.  Be careful not to burn.  Set aside to cool in a glass container.


Broil or grill until the peppers char and blister, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and when they have cooled to the touch, peel off the skin. Set aside.


Grill or broil the chicken breast till done.  Top each breast piece with a piece of red pepper and drizzle with the reduction.  Serve as a sandwich on flat bread or plated with couscous and glazed carrots.
