store bought favorite: tzatziki sauce & homemade favorite: tandoori chicken wrap










My husband declared our dinner tonight HALL OF FAME!  That's two nights in a row!!  We made this awesome tandoori chicken then put it in wraps with Trader Joe's Tzatziki Sauce, sliced red bell peppers, sliced tomatoes and reduced fat feta cheese.  Oh it was delicious.

store bought favorite: tzatziki sauce- creamy garlic cucumber dip (Trader Joe's)
thinly sliced cucumbers (!), kefir cheese, nonfat sour cream, water, lemon juice, garlic, salt, dill, mint, white pepper, locust bean gum, carrageenan
2 grams fat per 2 tablespoons
I will be going back to Trader Joe's tomorrow to buy another 12 ounces!

grilled tandoori chicken
3/4 cup coarsely chopped onion
1 teaspoon coarsely chopped peeled fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
dash of ground nutmeg
4 (4 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
cooking spray

Place first 3 ingredients in a food processor; process until finely chopped.  Add yogurt and the next 8 ingredients; pulse 4 times or until blended.
Make 3 diagonal cuts 1/4-inch deep across the top of each chicken breast half.  Combine chicken and yogurt mixture in a large zip-loc plastic bag.  Seal and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.  Prepare grill.  Remove chicken breast from bag; discard marinade.  Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray.  Cook 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is done.
