Ingredients

Chicken

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1 to 1 1/4 pounds total)
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh mint leaves (optional)

Cucumber Sauce

  • 3/4 cup Yoplait® Fat Free Plain Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh mint or 1/2 teaspoon dried mint, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped, seeded cucumber
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  • 1
    In a medium bowl combine yogurt, green onions, snipped or dried mint, cumin, salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Transfer half of the yogurt mixture to a small bowl; set aside. For cucumber-yogurt sauce, stir cucumber into remaining yogurt mixture.

    Sprinkle chicken breasts with 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

    Place chicken on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 6 minutes. Turn chicken. Broil for 6 to 9 minutes more or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, brushing chicken with reserved yogurt mixture during the last half of broiling.
