Food: Kitchen Clean Out – Chicken with Greek Yogurt

January 11, 2011

Some nights you just need to get rid of what you have in the kitchen. Some nights the concoction you come up with during this kitchen clean out is not really worth mentioning – I’m not proud of an infamous chickpea/wasabi/pasta night from my past. But I will say a recent experiment with chicken and greek yogurt turned out quite well. Here it is, in all of its dinner for one/kitchen clean out glory.

Chicken with Greek Yogurt

1 chicken cutlet
6 oz greek yogurt, plain and at room temperature
1/2 can diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tbsp flat leaf parsley, chopped
juice of 1/2 lemon
cheddar cheese, grated
salt and pepper

Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides, then pan-sear on medium high heat in a swirl of olive oil, 30 seconds per side. Add chicken broth, lemon juice, onions, and garlic, cook until broth is almost absorbed into chicken- just a few minutes.  Add tomatoes and parsley, cook until heated through.

Remove from heat, add greek yogurt. You don’t want the yogurt to separate, which is why it is important that it begin at room temperature and not be cooked in the pan. Top with grated cheese. Voila.
