Yogurt marinated chicken breasts with cucumber, tomato and feta salad

This is a great summer meal that’s fairly quick to make, requires few ingredients, and incorporates lots of goodies that come from your garden or the farmer’s market this time of year.

For the chicken:
Mix 1/2 cup plain, full fat yogurt, with three tablespoons chopped herbs from the garden (oregano, mint, lemon leaves makes a good combo), coarse sea salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder to taste. Pour mixture into large ziplock bag. Place raw chicken breasts into bag, press air out of bag, seal. Turn bag over a couple of times to evenly coat meat. Place in fridge for 1-2 hours to marinate.

Meanwhile, deseed 2 large cucumbers and dice into bite-sized pieces and throw into large bowl. Add 1.5 cups diced tomatoes (I used halved cherry tomatoes and small yellow roma tomatoes). Add 1 cup full-fat plain yogurt (or greek yogurt). Add coarse sea salt, onion powder, black pepper, garlic powder and paprika and gently stir to incorporate all ingredients without damaging cucumbers or tomatoes. Top bowl with crumbled feta cheese and chopped herbs from the garden. Cover and refrigerate.

Place chicken breasts on baking sheet lined with greased aluminum foil. Broil for about 7 minutes on each side, or until skin turns golden brown and chicken is cooked through. Serve along side a hearty portion of salad.
