Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine yogurt, red onion, lemon juice, ginger, garlic, garam masala, cumin, cayenne, and turmeric in a bowl. Place chicken breasts into yogurt mixture and flip to coat; cover bowl with plastic and refrigerate overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C). Spray a baking pan with cooking spray.

  • Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and thread onto skewers. Discard used marinade. Lay skewered chicken into baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is browned with a few blackened spots and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest piece should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). [See Note for grilling instructions.]

Grilling Instructions

Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Place skewers on the grill and cook, turning every 3 to 4 minutes, until nicely browned on all sides and chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes.
