Step 1. 

Season the chicken tenderloins with salt and pepper.

To make the marinade; In a mini food processer, combine marinade ingredients except for the yogurt and bring to a paste.  Once well combined, add the yogurt and mix it through. 

Alternatively, you can make your marinade in a mortar and pestle. (I love to do mine in a mortar and pestle).

Pour marinade over the chicken tenderloins and mix well to coat, massaging all over.
