Kanwal’s Healthy Corner – Chaat Chicken

Now that Thanksgiving is over how about we try to be nicer to our bodies and eat a bit healthier. My Chaat Chicken recipe packs a tremendous amount of flavor with great tang for not a whole lot of fat or calories!


  • 1lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, each piece cut in half
  • 2TB. of freshly grated garlic
  • 1/2c. of white vinegar
  • 3TB. of chaat masala
  • 1TB. of cumin powder
  • 2tsp. of chili powder
  • 1tsp. of turmeric
  • 1tsp. of smoked paprika


Combine all ingredients together and make sure chicken is evenly coated. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes. Turn your oven on to 400 degrees. Place chicken in a baking dish and cook uncovered for 20 minutes. Then cover chicken with foil and cook for another 10 minutes. Allow to cool. Enjoy with a side of roasted vegetables.

This wonderful dish serves four people.
