  • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flattened to an even width
  • 1 cup Plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp Ground cumin seed
  • 1 tsp Ground coriander
  • ½ tsp Garam masala
  • ½ tsp Turmeric
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • pinch Cayenne pepper (optional)

Additional toppings as desired: Plain yogurt, sliced tomato and cucumber, lettuce.


  1. Prepare chicken breast by flattening to desired, equal thickness with a meat tenderizer. Place chicken breasts in large Ziploc bag and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix yogurt with cumin, coriander, garam masala, turmeric, salt, cayenne pepper, ginger root and chilies. Mix until well combined. Reserve ¼ cup of yogurt mixture and place in fridge for later step.
  3. Add Canola or olive oil to remaining yogurt. Pour yogurt marinade in Ziploc bag with chicken.
  4. Mix well and return Ziploc with chicken to fridge to marinade for 3 hours (or overnight).
  5. Preheat BBQ to medium high. BBQ chicken breasts until internal temperature reaches 170 F (about 5-7 minutes per side), flipping once.
  6. Place a slice of Bothwell Smoked Gouda Cheese on each chicken breast. Close lid of BBQ until cheese is melted (about 1 minute). Remove chicken from grill.
  7. Prepare your burger bun with remaining curry yogurt sauce and other desired toppings. Place chicken breast on bun and enjoy!
