Strawberry Balsamic Chicken

Updated on August 4, 2012
5 stars from 2 ratings of Strawberry Balsamic Chicken

I work up one morning craving tandoori chicken and when I went to the refrigerator to find the ingredients I noticed I was out of plain yogurt. Still having the craving, I found the next best alternative and decided to try a new marinade recipe—this was the origin of the Strawberry Balsamic Chicken.

Using a low fat, low calorie yogurt offers a sweet base for the grilled chicken and the balsamic vinegar gives it a little tang. The combination of spices offer a little bit of heat that is offset by the sweetness.

While I have not tried other variations, one could try other flavors of yogurt along with the spices or replace the bone in chicken with boneless skinless chicken breast.
