  • 1 kg Diced Chicken Breast Skinless and Boneless

For the marinade:

  • 1 tablespoon Sunflower Oil or Vegetable, Rice Bran or Peanut
  • 5 tablespoon Full-Fat Natural Set Yogurt
  • 2 teaspoon Kashmiri Chili Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garam Masala
  • ½ teaspoon Cracked Black Pepper
  • 2 teaspoon Lime Juice or Lemon Juice
  • 3 teaspoon Ginger Garlic Paste
  • 1 handful Finely Chopped Fresh Cilantro Coriander


  • In a small bowl, add the yogurt with all the other ingredients for the marinade and mix until uniform.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the chicken and the marinade on top, and mix until every piece of chicken is fully coated. Cover the bowl with a lid or cling film and leave to marinate for at least half an hour in the fridge.
  • Once you are ready to start preparing and the meat is sufficiently marinated, preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius, Gas 4 or 350 Fahrenheit.
  • Choose a baking tray that had lifted edges where you will be able to rest the skewers; divide the meat on the skewers so that each piece is next to each other, without leaving a gap, but without them being too close together that the meat will struggle to cook.
  • Place the skewers on the baking tray so that the meat is almost floating (as in the picture in the description above), then put to cook on the middle tray in the oven for approximately 25 minutes, or until cooked.
  • Once ready, allow to sit for a couple of minutes before serving and enjoying.


I prefer to use full fat yogurt as it is harder for it to split while cooking, plus it is thicker, so it will keep the spices together while coating the chicken (low fat yogurt sometimes has so many other additives it is not wort it going low fat - check the label!) . Should you not have full fat yogurt, you can drain out the excess water by hanging the low fat yogurt in a muslin cloth.
