  • Starting on one long side, cut each chicken breast almost in half horizontally, stopping about 1/2 inch before reaching the opposite side. Open each breast like a book.

  • Add chicken to marinade and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.

  • Preheat broiler. In a small bowl, toss together red onion, cucumber, cilantro, lime juice, remaining 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, and pinch of salt.

  • Transfer chicken to a broiler pan. Discard marinade. Broil chicken, rotating pan once, until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Top with cucumber mixture.

Not so great for us, either. chicken is a little dry, the pan is a pain to clean, and could use some sauce. And, it seems like a waste of the yogurt.

This recipe turned out great for me! I can tell its a good recipe when my husband "hovers" over his plate. The Lemon Basmati rice was a great choice, too! (Thanks LefftHome!) Definitely will make this again.

This recipe was outstanding. I, too, usually tinker with a recipe but I made this as it was written. I agree that the cucumber mixture could be made ahead. It would make mealtime a snap! I can't wait to have this again. The accompanying Lemon Basmati Rice was a perfect addition.

This turned out so well for me! I pretty much stuck to the recipe. I would recommend making the cucumber mixture ahead of time so the flavors can infuse with one another. Also, adding tomato might be nice as well.
