Indian-Spiced Chicken Skewers for a Feel Good Meal

Posted on February 18, 2015 | By Marci Izard


· 3/4 tsp. cumin seeds

· 3/4 tsp. coriander seeds

· 2 small (5.3 oz.) containers of Greek yogurt

· 4 garlic cloves, chopped

· 1.5 in. piece of fresh ginger, chopped

· 3 tbsp. canola oil

· 2 tbsp. lime juice

· 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

· 3/4 tsp. ground turmeric

· 1/2 tsp. garam masala

· 1/2 tsp. black pepper

· 1/4 tsp. cayenne

· 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

· 3 lb. chicken breasts, cut into cubes



Warm a small pan over high heat. Add the cumin and coriander seeds. Shake the pan almost constantly, until the seeds slightly darken and become fragrant, about one minute.

In a small blender or food processor, combine all the ingredients, except the cilantro and chicken, and pulse until well combined. Place the pureed mixture, chicken and cilantro in a large Ziploc bag. Seal it and mix the ingredients around. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for 1-2 days (or at least 4 hours).

To cook, bring the chicken to room temperature and then skewer it (soak the skewers for 30 minutes if using wooden ones). Lightly grease a broiler pan and heat up the broiler.

Broil the chicken on the second highest rack for 4-5 minutes. Flip the skewers and cook for 4-5 minutes more.

Serves 4-6.
