Afghan Chicken

Afghan Chicken

In the world of simple chicken recipes, this recipe is king. This tasty, low-fat chicken recipe is easy and flavorful. Use easy chicken recipes like this one to get lean protein and other nutrients into your diet.

Serves: 2

  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups plain whole-milk yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice and lemon cup, 1 large lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 large whole chicken breasts, about 2 pounds
  1. Put the salt in a wide, shallow non-reactive bowl with the garlic and mash them to a paste. Add yogurt, lemon and pepper.
  2. Skin the chicken breasts, remove all fat and split the halves. Break the bones so the pieces lie flat.
  3. Add to the yogurt and turn so all surfaces are well-coated. Cover the bowl tightly and refrigerate. Allow to marinate at least overnight, up to a day and a half, turning occasionally.
  4. To cook, remove breasts from marinade and wipe off all but a thin film. Broil or grill about 6 inches from the heat for 6 to 8 minutes a side, or until thoroughly cooked. Serve with soft pita or Arab flatbread and fresh yogurt.

this recipe sounds delicious. It also seems very easy to make. Unfortunately I also don't understand the lemon part of this ingredient list but I think if you add in the 4 tablespoons of lemon juice the recipe will work. I would also add in the zest of a large lemon as that can only enhance the flavor.

This sounds amazing. I do not quite understand the lemon part of the ingredient list. Is it written correctly. I don't know what it means by lemon cup. Does it mean zest from one lemon? I love using lemon pepper seasoning so I am sure this would give a similar taste.
