Author Notes: 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


Makes about 6 kebabs

for the kebabs

  • 1 - 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons chicken tikka masala spice blend (make or buy your favorite)
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoons cayenne pepper (depending on spice tolerance)
  • 1/2 lemon (juice)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper

for the dipping sauce

  • 1/4 cup grated cucumber (on box grater or microplane)
  • 1.2 cups non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 lemon (juice)
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro (rough chop)
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
