Spicy Tarragon Yogurt Chicken Recipe

  • 1 bunch fresh tarragon sprigs, leaves only
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek-style yogurt
  • 1/4 cup harissa sauce (see footnote for recipe link)
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar or citrus juice
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 large chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup harissa sauce, for garnish
  • 4 sprigs tarragon, for garnish
  1. Combine tarragon, Greek yogurt, harissa sauce, garlic, vinegar, cumin, and salt in a blender. Puree until smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Pour marinade over chicken breasts in a shallow dish, thoroughly coating both sides. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove chicken breasts from the marinade and place on the pre-heated grill. Cook over medium-high heat until dark grill marks appear, about 7 minutes per side.
  4. Garnish with harissa sauce and a sprig of tarragon.
