      Working with 1 chicken breast at a time, place chicken between 2 sheets of waxed paper and pound to ½ -inch thickness. Transfer chicken breasts to a resealable plastic bag. Blend ..." cup oil, 2 tsp. salt, and all remaining ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Pour yogurt mixture over chicken (reserving about ½ cup), seal bag, and turn chicken to coat. Marinate chicken in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight.

      Build a medium fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil. Scrape excess marinade off chicken; season with salt. Grill chicken, turning once, until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 165°F, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
