  • This is enough marinade + sauce for 1 chicken breast; double the recipe for a pound of chicken to serve 4!
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar


  • Combine all ingredients in a heavy duty freezer bag (long term/freezer storage) or a bowl (short term/fridge storage). Add chicken breasts and turn to coat in marinade.


  • Marinate the chicken in the fridge for 2-24 hours.


  • If freezing, place in the freezer immediately. Thaw in the fridge overnight, or by immersing the bag in a bowl of cold water for a couple of hours.

To bake

  • Heat oven to 425°F. Bake chicken in a shallow baking dish for 10 minutes, flip over, then bake for another 10-20 minutes.
  • For 5-7 oz chicken breasts, bake for 20 minutes total. For 10 oz and larger chicken breasts, bake for at least 25 minutes.
  • Allow chicken to rest at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
