Looking for Low Fat Diets? Make no mistake ;cook delicious Low fat Chicken recipe with the help of yogurt and a few spice mixI just could not devote much time cooking recipes which take away a lot of time from our regular schedules. So I think and discover the ways to make tasty yet healthy and delicious recipes within just a few minutes. While thinking is a good habit , thinking about the betterment of human health through low fat recipes is even better! My previous a number of recipes revolve around vegetables. Sometimes we need to blend and balance our diets with non vegetarian touches that has the capacity to yield even more fruitful result both for our minds and bodies. Thus I opted to prepare easy and tasty chicken side dish which possess fat reducing factors; yet produce a sumptuous appetite to suffice the non vegetarian cravings you have grown inside:)

Yogurt chicken or Dahi chicken is a common idea but it takes a deep plunge if you consider making it healthier than the so called  oil dripped Bengali dishes such as Kasha Mangsho, Creamy Chicken Salsa, Parsian style Chicken curry etc. I recommend using less cooking oil for the recipe as both chicken and yogurt are generous source of fat/oil. It encourages people to eat dishes in almost any form but with a positive health quotient associated somehow or the other to the recipes. I came across the tv show Fitfoodie hosted by Chef Vikas Khanna a few days ago. It gave me even greater inspiration to  think and prepare low fat diets such as Low fat chicken recipe which is actually a low fat consumption in disguise of a gorgeous side dish made up of our favorite non vegetarian  chick chick chicken:)
