Grilled Chicken with Lemon-Cucumber Relish

Chicken Dish 2On Monday night I made this delicious dish for dinner. It was a super easy and overall quick recipe! Both the Mr. and I enjoyed it. And, it was really good for lunch the next day! With it, I served a salad mix from Costco that I have purchased several times. It is the Sweet Kale Salad…pretty sure I have mentioned this before. Both the Mr. and I love it!

Grilled Chicken with Lemon-Cucumber Relish (from May 2013 Better Homes & Garden) – Serves 4


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 medium cucumber, seeds removed and chopped
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon milk (I used almond milk)


Brush chicken breast with olive oil. Sprinkle with cumin, salt and pepper. Either on the BBQ or on a grill pan on stove top, cover and grill on medium heat for 15 minutes or until done (mine took around 20 minutes but I had my stove on medium low so that I didn’t cook to fast and dry out).

Meanwhile, for Lemon-Cucumber relish, in a medium bowl combine cucumber, tomato, onion, lemon juice and garlic. Stir to combine. In a small bowl combine yogurt, honey and milk. Stir to combine.

To serve, top chicken with Lemon-Cucumber Relish. Drizzle with yogurt sauce.
