Chicken on Skewers
250g boneless chicken
1/3 cup plain yogurt
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilly powder
1/4 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp cumin powder
2 tbsp fresh coriander, finely chopped
11/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
Olive oil, to drizzle over the chicken
Soak the wooden / bamboo skewers in some cold water for 30 minutes to an hour.
Cut the chicken into cubes.
Mix the spices in the yogurt in a bowl and check for salt levels and adjust if needed.
Add the chicken pieces to the spice mix and toss well to coat.
Cover the bowl with some cling film and leave it to marinate in the fridge for about 4-6 hours or overnight. If you are in a rush, try and let it marinate for atleast an hour.
When you’re ready to bake, carefully thread the chicken pieces onto the wooden skewers. Drizzle some olive oil over the chicken.
I placed the skewers on a foil lined baking dish to catch the drip (since I didn’t want to add to the clean up later).
Bake in a preheated oven (about 180ºC) on the top shelf under the grill, for about 8 to 10 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through.
- Don’t cut the chicken pieces too small else they’ll dry out while cooking.
- You may baste the pieces with a little olive oil when you flip them over.

I love the herbs and spices you used to season these up. Thanks for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday.
We call them kathi kebabs here. They look so tempting and delicious. Thanks for sharing this simple yet effective method.
Thanks for that snippet of info Deepa, I just went by instinct and hence the name. But I want to get better versed with making a few more types of kebabs and their names 🙂
We would just love your flavor combination for your Chicken skewers. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and have a great week.
Come Back Soon!
Thank you Miz Helen!
Hi Trisha, I stumbled on your site and am impressed by the body of work. I love all your recipes, and I have a suggestion. for your chicken, I like to add kasoori methi to my marinade. It raises the flavor. I use kasoori methi quite often in my chicken dishes and love the taste. Thanks for all your lovely recipes
Thanks for the suggestion. I will try that out when I make these next. Thanks for stopping by.
