Curry Yogurt Chicken

This recipe was inspired by a chicken wrap I had at a local restaurant. I didn't really manage to duplicate the restaurant dish, but the results were quite good. Quantities for this dish are even more approximate than usual, because all my measuring utensils are still packed in a box somewhere.

Grilling or broiling the chicken would probably work, too - I might try that next time.

The Ingredients

For the marinade:

For the yogurt sauce:

To serve with the chicken:

The Steps

  1. Stir together all the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl. Add the chicken pieces and toss to coat thoroughly. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. When ready to cook, heat a bit of olive oil in a large saute pan, and saute the chicken over medium-high heat until cooked through. (About 10-15 minutes, depending on how big you cut the chicken pieces.)
  3. While the chicken is cooking, make the yogurt sauce by whisking together those ingredients. (It now occurs to me that you might as well make the yogurt sauce at the same time you make the marinade, and let the flavors blend in the fridge overnight. But that wasn't the way I did it this time.)
  4. Serve pieces of chicken wrapped in warm pita with lettuce, onion, carrot, tomato, yogurt sauce. Add hot sauce to taste.

Serves 3-4.
