  1. 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.
  2. Preheat oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C). Spray a baking pan with cooking spray.
  3. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and thread onto skewers. Discard used marinade. Lay skewered chicken into baking pan.
  4. 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.]

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 ...
