Gametime Snaxx

Hariyali Chicken -- the leafy greens will go well with the Jets jerseys. Beware, eatching too much of this is entirely possible, and could leave you looking like Rex Ryan.

serves 4-6 (prep time 15 minutes, marinate time 3-4 hours, cook time 20 mintes)
approx. 1 lb boneless chicken breast (for veggies, firm tofu would work really well here too)
4 tbsp oil
1 cup yogurt (use Greek yogurt to save time on draining)
1 tbsp finely chopped garlic
1 tbsp finely chopped ginger
1 cup chopped spinach
1 cup chopped methi (fenugreek leaves, can eliminate if hard to find, but provide a bitter zing to the sweetness of the spinach)
chopped green chiles to taste
salt/pepper to taste

Wrap in yogurt in cheesecloth and drain for an hour (or use greek yog).
Rinse and dry chicken.
Prick with fork and cut into bite sized cubes.
Chop the garlic, ginger, spinach, methi and chiles and combine to a paste.
Mix paste, yogurt and chicken and marinate for 3-4 hours.
Get oil in pan to high heat, and add chicken. Once browned, reduce heat and cook until tender and done.
Serve with lemon wedges.

The green is for J-E-T-S!
