I love a good Indian dish. The other night I was craving some Indian, but wanted to make my own, healthy version. I can't really claim that this is authentic Indian, but used an Indian spice mix to make kebabs. The dish is super quick to make, and really healthy! It will be a new weeknight staple at my house! —Brussels Sprouts for Breakfast
about 6 kebabs
for the kebabs
1 - 1 1/2 pounds
boneless, skinless chicken breast
chicken tikka masala spice blend (make or buy your favorite)
1/2 - 1 teaspoons
cayenne pepper (depending on spice tolerance)
salt and pepper
for the dipping sauce
grated cucumber (on box grater or microplane)
non-fat Greek yogurt
cilantro (rough chop)
In This Recipe
Start by cutting up the chicken breasts into 1 inch cubes, approximately, and drop into a mixing bowl. Coat the cubes in Tikka Masala spices, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. You could let this marinade for a few hours, or just put it on skewers right away. Skewer onto wooden skewers, about 5-6 pieces per skewer.
Crank up a grill pan to medium high heat. You want the chicken to sizzle when it hits the pan. Drop the skewers onto the pan, and let brown on all sides. It will take somewhere between 12-15 minutes.
As the skewers cook, make the dipping sauce. Combine the grated cucumber, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, cilantro and salt in a mixing bowl. Let sit until chicken is ready.
