I've finished marinating the chicken breast in yogurt...now what?

I have marinated a small CB overnight in a mixture of yogurt, onion salt and turmeric. The problem is that I don't recall what recipe I'd planned to make. Can Chowhounds suggest something creative to do with this lonely, and lost chicken breast.
Never start planning your meals when sleepwalking!
I marinate cubes of chicken breast similarly, in mayo and spices, (recipe from Slow Mediterranean Cookbook) and then just pop the meat under the broiler until it's done. Then I wrap it in lavash with tomato, cucumber, romaine, yogurt/tahini sauce. Delicious and sooo easy.
You could also do something like this easy chicken "korma" (didn't quite taste like korma, but good. I tried it last week -- great for a chilly day.
GRILLED- INDIAN SPICED BUTTER CHICKEN
WOW! It definitely would be in the running for a sample taste, diablo. Now I'm thinking I may have conjured up this selection in my dreams. Did I tell you that I'm being channeled by an ancient chef from Calcutta?
I'd have to add a few more ingredients to the marinate and slip it back in the fridge for a few more hours.I'll start making the ghee right now.
Purée onion, garlic, ginger, salt, chile, and vinegar to a smooth paste in a food processor. Transfer to a large wide bowl and whisk in yogurt, coriander, oil, turmeric, and cayenne. Add chicken pieces and turn to coat thickly. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate, chilled, at least 16 hours. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before grilling.
and a 3 meatball Thank You for this
I'd suggest searching for Nigella Lawson's "Surrounded by pasta, dreaming of tikka" article in, I think, the NYTimes. She's in Italy and dreaming of India food from London.
The tikka recipe is great (chunks of chicken marinated in yoghurt, spices, etc. She also has a wonderful onion salad - to go along with.
I think there's also a fantastic coconut marzipan cake recipe in the article. I've made all these recipes at least 15 times. Never gets old.
