While the chicken is marinating, get your hands on making the great sauce. Add the  cucumber yogurt to a bowl. Stir in the minced garlic, chopped fresh dill, lemon juice, ground nutmeg, and black pepper. Mix until combined. Put the sauce in the fridge until ready to serve.

Step 4

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. You can also use a grill pan. Place the marinated chicken breasts on the grill, brush them with the remaining sauce in the plastic bag, and cook for about eight to ten minutes per side.
When a thermometer inserted in the chicken center reaches 165F (73C), they are done. Remove from the grill and place it on a fancy flat plate. Serve this amazing grilled meat with the cucumber yogurt sauce.
