Yoghurt and Paprika Marinated Chicken

In case you wanted to spice up your chicken breasts

Grilled chicken breasts are one of my favourite and versatile forms of protein. Although I try to fill my plate with a lot of plant based foods, my body craves animal protein and just doesn't feel the same without it.

I am sure you've heard it all before but protein plays such a crucial role within the body including meal satiety, muscle growth and development (whether you lift weights or not), aiding the production of neurotransmitters and hormones, digestion and a plethora of others.

Without further ado, here is your recipe!


2 large chicken breasts (PLEASE use organic, free range or hormone free chicken)

6 tbsp greek yoghurt (if you are dairy intolerant you can use plain coconut yoghurt)

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp maple syrup

4 tsp paprika

2 tsp onion powder

1 tsp ground cumin

Large pinch of salt


Chop the chicken into large cubes- approximately 3cm

Place the chicken and all other ingredients into a large bowl and mix

Leave to marinade in the fridge for approximately 2 hours

Grill on medium heat until cooked through- approximately 10 minutes

Add to your favourite salad, side dish or tabouli (as pictured above)- you can find the recipe here


Serves 4
