1/2 - cup plain Greek yogurt
2 - tablespoons olive oil
1 - tablespoon grated peeled fresh turmeric*
1 - tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1 - tablespoon lime juice
2 - cloves garlic, minced
1 - teaspoon coriander seeds, toasted and ground
1/2 - teaspoon kosher salt
4 - skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1 1/2 lb.) or 1 1/2 lb. skinless, boneless chicken thighs
Cooked basmati rice
Lime wedges
Fresh snipped fresh cilantro

For marinade, in a small bowl whisk together the first eight ingredients (through salt). Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over chicken. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator 2 to 24 hours.

Remove chicken from marinade; discard any marinade remaining in bag. Place chicken on a well-greased grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat 12 to 15 minutes or until done (165 degrees F for breasts, at least 170 degrees F for thighs), turning once. Serve chicken with rice and lime wedges. If desired, sprinkle with fresh cilantro.

To peel turmeric, use a vegetable scrubber to remove the tender peel.
