  • 1 6 ounce carton plain Greek fat-free yogurt

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced green onions (2)

  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh mint

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • Dash cayenne pepper

  • ¾ cup chopped, seeded cucumber

  • ¼ cup finely chopped red sweet pepper

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds total)

  • teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In a medium bowl combine yogurt, green onions, mint, garlic powder, salt, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, and the cayenne pepper. Transfer 1/3 cup of the yogurt mixture to a small bowl; set aside. For minted yogurt sauce, stir cucumber and sweet pepper into the remaining yogurt mixture.

  2. Sprinkle chicken breast halves with 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill chicken on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes or until no longer pink (170°F), turning and brushing generously with the 1/3 cup reserved yogurt mixture halfway through grilling time.

  3. Serve chicken with the minted yogurt sauce.
