Directions

  1. In a blender, puree the chopped onion and the garlic with the garam masala, ½ cup of the yogurt, ¼ cup of the vinegar, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Transfer to a medium bowl, add the chicken, and turn to coat. Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the remaining ¼ cup of yogurt, 2 tablespoons of vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of oil with 1 tablespoon water, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add the lettuce, chickpeas, and sliced onion and toss to combine. Top with the chicken, apricots, and plum.
