Prepare the coriander yogurt

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and season. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Prepare the marinade

Add all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth and pour into a shallow dish.
Freeze the chicken breasts for 5 minutes to make them firm and then slice in half, horizontally.
Cut the slices into strips and add to the marinade. Toss it well so that it gets coated well.
Cover with clear film and chill for around 4-5 hours.
Once done, pre-heat the grill. Arrange the chicken pieces on a foil lined baking sheet.
Cook under a hot grill for about 5- 10 minutes or until it turns brown and is cooked through, turning it once.
Once done thread the grilled chicken onto cocktail sticks.
Serve with the coriander yogurt.
