Cool Cucumber Chicken

The Other Williams and I had this tonight and it was wonderful. With the gardens in full bloom fresh cucumbers are all over the place. This is a great recipe that will use up your surplus. It's great for a hot day because it's on the grill keeping the heat outside and the cool cucumber and dill sauce is fabulous. Enjoy!

4 Boneless skinless chicken breast
2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium cucumber, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup plain reduced-fat yogurt
2 tbsp reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tbsp minced fresh dill (or 1 tsp of dried dill)
Pepper to taste

Marinate the chicken breasts for 1 hour or overnight in fresh lemon juice. This will keep the chicken moist and give it great favor. (We do this a lot with chicken.) Brush both sides of chicken with oil.

Grill over medium heat, turning occasionally, until juices run clear. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Spoon over warm chicken; serve immediately. Or to serve cold, spoon sauce over chicken and refrigerate several hours or over night.

Servings: 4
