Low Carb Grilled Chicken Indian Style

This recipe takes the flavors of my Indian Butter Chicken and makes them into a grill rub.

I invited my toddler to make the marinade with me and she had a ton of fun smelling all the spices. It was nice to spend time making something healthy as opposed to the more traditional carb-laden baking our culture tends to do with kids.

This chicken is a nice change of pace from BBQ and all the usual summer grill flavors. This is deliciously different and low carb!

  • 4 Chicken breasts
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 3 tbsp. chopped cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, diced
  • 1 tbsp. freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tbsps. garam masala
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ¼ cup oil

1.Mix all the spices and herbs and oil in a dish.

2. Slice chicken breasts in half to reduce grilling time and add to the dish.

3.Stir and let marinate 6-8 hours (or overnight).

4.Grill until done.

5.Top with fresh cilantro.
