Preheat broiler.

In a 2-cup measuring cup, whisk together yogurt, olive oil, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, cumin, onion powder, vinegar, salt and pepper. Place chicken breast halves in shallow nonreactive baking dish. Set aside 1 tablespoon of yogurt mixture and spoon the remaining mixture over the chicken, turning once to coat evenly. Set aside to marinate for 15 minutes.

Lightly coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.  Place chicken, skin side down, on broiler pan. Broil 4 inches away from heat source for 10 to 12 minutes, until nicely browned. Turn, baste with reserved yogurt mixture and continue to broil until breasts are done, about 5 minutes.
