Add spice to your chicken! Jae’s low cal spicy chicken with a mint yogurt sauce

Using spices while cooking can save you so many calories. Often times we choose lean proteins and vegetables, but when we add excessive amount of oil, full fat cheese and sauces it makes a healthy meal well…not so health. I wanted to create a recipe where all the flavor came from spice to keep the calories down.

Chicken gets a bad rap! People get easily bored and feel they have to force themselves to eat it because it is such a lean meat. Here is a way to get around that….

In a bowl mix 1 tablespoon paprika, 1 tablespoon onion powder, 2 teaspoons ground cumin, 2 teaspoons ground mustard seeds, 2 teaspoons ground fennel seeds, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon ground black pepper and 1 teaspoons kosher salt. Brush eight, 4oz boneless chicken cutlets with olive oil and sprinkle the spice mixture all over. Saute chicken until fully cooked.

Mix 6 oz of non fat greek yogurt with ¼ cup of freshly chopped mint for the yogurt sauce. Add a dollop of sauce on top of the chicken and enjoy this full-of-flavor dish!
