Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 bone-in skinless chicken breasts halves (10 to 12 ounces each)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Directions
