4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 2 1/2 tablespoons chutney)

Chutney is a spicy fruit condiment that's widely used in Indian-style recipes. Here, the tomato chutney is served over chicken spiced with coriander, curry powder, and cumin. A serving of this dish provides about one-tenth of your daily potassium needs. Serve with broccoli and whole wheat pitas.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare chutney, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and serrano; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add ginger and garlic; cook 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Add tomato, vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Uncover and simmer 5 minutes or until mixture is thick. Set aside, and keep warm.

Step 2

Prepare grill.

Step 3

To prepare chicken, heat 2 teaspoons oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add coriander, curry, cumin, and black pepper; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Brush mixture evenly on both sides of chicken; sprinkle evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Step 4

Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Serve chutney over chicken.

I adapted this heavily using less expensive skinless chicken quarters and grilling it outside. http://www.dishoverdinner.com/2014/09/indian-spiced-chicken-with-tomato.html

This was a great, fast dinner. My husband loved it and we both ate the leftovers for dinner the next day. Instead of eating the pita on the side, we ate the chicken and tomato as a pita sandwich.

This is a very tasty and easy to make meal. I have made it several times, but I think next time I'll reduce the sugar to 3/4 T. It was just a little too much. I didn't have the serrano pepper this most recent time, but I still liked the dish. Also, no grill at home, so I cooked the chicken on the stovetop. Very tasty & can't wait to eat the leftovers tonight!

This just might be my new CL favorite! Flavorful without being spicy... every bite a pleasure. I made according to the recipe, but doubled the chutney as recommended by others. As it was, every bite got eaten. Also grilled the chicken in the George Foreman, as suggested-- worked out really well. Enough effort to make you feel like you've accomplished something, but really fairly quick and easy. I'm already thinking of guests who will enjoy it!
