Ingredients
2 1/4 cups plain whole-milk yogurt
1/3 cup (half of a small bunch) chopped cilantro, plus leaves for garnish
3 scallions, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
6 tablespoons fruit chutney, such as mango
3 tablespoons EVOO
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
4 medium sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), each sliced lengthwise into 8 wedges

Preparation
In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, cilantro, and scallions; season with salt and pepper. Measure out 1 cup and transfer to a small serving bowl; refrigerate. Measure out 1/4 cup of the mixture, transfer to a medium bowl and set aside. Season the chicken with salt and pepper; add to the large bowl with the remaining yogurt mixture and toss to coat. Let marinate for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir 2 tablespoons chutney, 1 tablespoon EVOO, and the mustard into the medium bowl of the yogurt mixture.

Preheat a large grill pan over medium heat. Toss the sweet potatoes on a plate with the remaining 2 tablespoons EVOO; season with salt and pepper. Arrange on the grill pan and cook, turning once, until lightly charred, 10 to 15 minutes; transfer to a plate. Let cool before cutting into bite-size pieces; toss with the yogurt chutney.

Oil the grill pan and cook the chicken over medium to medium-high heat, turning once, until cooked through 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with the remaining 4 tablespoons chutney, the refrigerated yogurt sauce, and the sweet potato salad, topped with the cilantro leaves.
