SCD Chicken in Indian-Spiced Yogurt Sauce

Brown, crusty chicken with Indian spices and cooling yogurt. What could be better? And it's really easy, too.

3/4 cup SCD yogurt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
pinch of cinnamon
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
3 tablespoons chopped mint leaves and/or scallions

Mix yogurt, spices, and lemon juice together in a large bowl or ziplock and add chicken.  Marinate for an hour. Then, heat pan to medium and add the oil. Cook the chicken in the pan, turning once. It should cook for about 10 minutes. Garnish with chopped mint leaves and scallions.
