Inspired by the flavors of India, these chicken thigh skewers take only 15 minutes in the oven, plus a couple of minutes under the broiler. Serve warm over rice as a main dish, at room temperature as an appetizer, or as a protein source for a salad.

  • Slice each chicken thigh lengthwise into 3 or 4 slices, add to the bag with the marinade, and refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and move an oven rack to the center of the oven. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil.

  • Thread chicken thigh pieces onto six 15-inch metal skewers and place crossways across the prepared sheet pan, resting the ends of the skewers on the raised edges of the pan.

  • Bake skewers in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Broil chicken skewers for 3 minutes until meat is lightly charred, watching closely.
