Wasabi-Yogurt Marinated Chicken

Ok, ok, so I'm not quite over my wasabi kick yet!  I've been trying to think of more and more ways to use this amazingly spicy little condiment... and, after making the Yogurt Dijon Marinated Chicken a few weeks ago, I thought... wait a minute... yogurt makes chicken nice and moist.... wasabi makes it nice and flavorful.... let's try this.......

And Wasabi-Yogurt Marinated Chicken was born!

Wasabi-Yogurt Marinated Chicken
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
- Serves 2 -
Printable Recipe 
1 - 5.3oz container plain Greek yogurt
2 1/2 teaspoons wasabi paste
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, wasabi and soy sauce until well combined.  Place the chicken in a resealable bag or shallow dish and spoon the yogurt mixture over top.  Cover/seal and place in refrigerator for 4-6 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Remove chicken from bag/dish and shake off any excess marinade.  Place the chicken over the fire and grill 8-10 minutes per side or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.  Remove and allow to rest for 5 minutes.  I served this with a sauce made up of wasabi and soy sauce - but it doesn't need a thing!  Enjoy!
