Spicy Chicken Kebabs

Here is the yummy recipe for Chicken Kebabs that I featured on my live streaming facebook event in May 2020 to kick off the summer season. They are medium spicy on the spicy heat index. You can certainly adjust it to make it super spicy! Enjoy!!

 

Ingredients

1 – 1 ½ lb boneless skinless chicken breast

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp ginger powder

1 tsp garlic powder – 1 tsp

½ tsp Anar Gourmet Foods Hot Indian Curry powder

½ tsp Garam Masala

1 tsp Salt, add more to taste

¼ tsp Cayenne

½ tsp Turmeric

¼ tsp black pepper

1 cup plain non-fat or low fat yogurt, Stonyfield yogurt preferred

2 Tbsp lemon juice

8 oz grape tomatoes

1 large purple onions, quartered into big chunks

Tip: For super spicy kebabs: use only ½ cup of yogurt vs. 1 cup; add in ½ thumb sized jalapeno diced into small pieces. Add this to the marinade.

Recipe

  1. Cut chicken breast into 1 ½ “to 2” cubes and put in a bowl. Add lemon juice to bowl and set aside.
  2. Add all spices together in bowl, add 1 cup yogurt to bowl and mix together (for spicier kebabs, use only ½ cup of yogurt along with jalapeno (optional).
  3. (Optional step) Only do this if you are comfortable with tasting “raw” spices. Taste marinade to adjust salt and spicy heat. If it tastes too spicy, add more > ¼ - ½ cup yogurt. Caution: The taste will be “sharp” as spices haven’t been cooked. This “sharpness” will go away when you grill the chicken.
  4. Mix chicken with yogurt marinade. Set aside for at least 2 hour or overnight for best results.
  5. Thread the skewers with alternating chicken, grape tomato and onion pieces. If using bamboo skewers, soak them for at least 30 mins to keep them from burning on grill.
  6. Grill the chicken kebabs for ~ 10-11 mins, start off high to sear it, then maintain low to medium heat (350-400 degrees) turning once.
  7. Let sit for at least 5-10 mins before eating.

Eat with salad, yogurt cucumber raita and Indian flat bread- Naan or Parathas!

Enjoy!

A delicious addition

Thank you for adding butter chicken. We can't seem to get enough of Priya's spice blends. Looking forward to whatever is next!

Fabulous!

I had this sitting in the back of my pantry for a bit with the best intentions of making it, but always forgetting to pick a component up at the store. I am so sad that I waited so long to make it! It was fabulous!! We had it for dinner last night and I followed the video instructions to use my Instant Pot. So warm and comforting. I did not quite have a full cup of heavy cream, so I did 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup half and half with perfect results. Very easy and tasty! I will certainly be stocking up!

Thank you Alicia for your wonderful review. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed my Chicken Tikka Masala recipe. I love the substitution for the heavy cream with half and half. Great idea!
Thanks again! Cheers, Priya

Family Favorite!

I have two picky kids that can never agree on what they like to eat. We all love the Beef Keema! I am looking forward to trying other Anar flavors!

Cooking this recipe was very easy and I was able to cook in my Instant Pot based on the video posted on the website. The final product was very good!

This has turned into a family favorite and we eat it at least once a month. It makes a ton, so there’s always leftovers. This is a must try!
