If you don't want to heat up your kitchen you can cook the chicken on the grill instead; grill on high heat, 6-8 minutes per side. Make it a meal: Serve with a fragrant brown basmati rice.

ingredients

  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mango chutney
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala (see note) or curry powder, mild or hot
  • 4 bone-in chicken thighs (1 3/4-2 pounds), skin removed, trimmed of fat
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 mango, diced
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Ingredient Note: Garam masala is a fragrant blend of ground spices commonly used in Indian cooking. It's in the spice section of most supermarkets and specialty stores.

directions

Position a rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat the broiler. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.

Whisk the yogurt, chutney and garam masala (or curry powder) in a medium bowl. Add the chicken; turn to coat. Remove the chicken from the sauce and transfer to the prepared broiler pan; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Broil the chicken until the coating is charred in spots, 12-15 minutes. Turn the chicken over and continue cooking until it is slightly charred and cooked through, 12-15 minutes more.

Meanwhile, combine the mango, onion, mint, vinegar, brown sugar and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Serve the chicken with the mango salad.
