Ingredients: very easy, total time 30 min., 4 persons
  • 700 g chicken breast or boneless, skinless chicken thighs cubed

  • 3 Tbsp Olive oil EVO

  • 80 ml yogurt

  • 2 tsp fresh ginger minced/ or paste

  • 1 Tbsp fresh garlic cloves/ minced

  • 2 tsp Garam masala

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp cumin

  • 2 tsp mild chili powder

  • 1/2 Tbsp turmeric

  • 1 tsp coriander

  • 1 tsp paprika powder

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne powder/ optional

  • 1 lime juice

  • butter for basting/ optional


Season the chicken first:

  1. In a deeper bowl, place the diced chicken together with the olive oil, yogurt, ginger, garlic, all the spices and lime juice.

  2. Stir well and leave the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes. If it stays longer and is not a problem, it will marinate better. (You can also prepare the marinade the day before, it will be even tastier.)

  3. Soak wooden skewers in warm water for 20–30 minutes to prevent them from burning in the oven or on the grill.

  4. After marinating, prepare the chicken.

  5. Put the chicken on the skewers.

  6. This recipe can make 5–7 skewers.

  7. Heat a grill or pan over a moderate heat.

  8. Coat the grill with oil so that it does not stick.

  9. Place the skewers on the grill, bake them for about 6–8 minutes on each side.

  10. Optionally, stuff the skewers by coating them once with butter on each side, once while baking.

  11. When done, remove the grill and serve warm!

Buon appetito!

NOTE: If you use chicken thighs, preheat the oven to 220 °C. Cover the dish with foil and add the grate to it. Spray the grid to avoid sticking and place the skewers. Bake for about 20 minutes, until it takes on a good color and the meat is cooked properly.

If you are roasting chicken breasts, roast them for 10–12 minutes at the same temperature, then continue for 2–3 minutes until they are nicely browned.

Remove the meat from the oven and serve warm.

To make Cilantro (parsley)Sauce: To make cilantro sauce add a bunch of finely chopped parsley, 2 whole chopped jalapeños with removed seeds and stalk, plain yogurt, mayonnaise, Mexican cream, minced garlic cloves, chopped paprika, cumin, salt, black pepper and a little lime juice flavor.
