  • 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.]

The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the marinade ingredients. The actual amount of the marinade consumed will vary.

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.

Recipe Group: Yummy chicken. I cubed before marinating (I like to cut the chicken up while just a hair frozen it's much easier). I used three breasts only because they were enormous. Only other change was to use bottled lemon juice instead of fresh. I soaked my bamboo skewers in water before threading the chicken on. It's a very easy recipe. I felt kinda bad throwing away a whole onion though; maybe a half onion would be enough to flavor. I convect roasted at 350 for about 20 minutes; served with homemade naan yum! Read More

Made this for Recipe group...Very good! I cut my chicken into cubes prior to marinating b/c I thought it would be better and less messy that way. I used fat free Greek yogurt which worked out great. Really nice combo of flavors and was great for something different. This would be awesome tucked inside a pita w/ all the fixins'. I will def be making this again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Recipe Group Selection: 03 January 2015 This was just ok for us. I marinaded the chicken overnight which I cubed first. I wasn't really sure how or with what to serve it with. I sauteed some onion and after baking the chicken skewers as directed served it in a pita shell. It was good but extra sauce would have made it better. I'm never sorry trying a new recipe and this wasn't bad by any means. But additional instruction on how to serve would have been helpful. Read More

Recipe Group. It may have been "operator error" but I wasn't impressed. I made it exactly as written except subbed yellow onion for red. Now I'm on a hunt for recipes to use the garam masala I had to order from Penzys since I couldn't find it locally. Read More
