Recipe by my friend, Sumrina Yousuf

1 pound boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1 (8 oz.) low fat key lime-flavored yogurt
1/2 bunch of cilantro leaves
1/2 medium yellow onion
1 fat or 2 skinny jalapenos (adjust to taste)
1 teaspoon garlic & ginger paste
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
sea salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste
1 fresh lime juice, cut into wedges for garnish plus 1 teaspoon lime zest
1 tablespoon EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

Toss cilantro leaves, yogurt, onion, jalapenos, 1 teaspoon of lime zest, and garlic/ginger paste in a food processor and blend into a smooth paste.  Add EVOO in a large skillet, combine chicken, cilantro paste, cumin, paprika, salt and freshly cracked pepper and cook on medium heat until chicken is cooked through.  The sauce and chicken will release a lot of water (make sure not to overcook or the sauce may become dry)Then simmer on low heat to allow dry almost all the way through and leave curry to consistency desired.  Serve over rice.  Enjoy!
