These are spicy chicken kebabs that must be served with the recommended yoghurt and lemon wedges to really bring all the flavours together and make the spices work. Like with good marinades this should be marinaded overnight. Trust me, the longer you marinade, the tastier the dish! This can be cooked on the bbq or the griddle pan if you are not blessed with the lovely weather we are currently having.
I use chicken breasts for this as the husband is particular about his cut of meat. You could use thighs as well, if you wished.
2 tspn ground cardamon
1/2 tsn ground tumeric
1 tspn ground allspice
3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
4 large chicken breasts (or thighs…depends upon you or your husband)
salt and pepper
1/2 cup plain yoghurt
- Whisk the cardamon, tumeric, allspice, garlic, lemon juice and oil together. Season with the salt and pepper.
- Cut the chicken into cubes and toss in the spice marinade. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Thread the chicken cubes onto a skewer and cook on a hot bbq or griddle pan for about 4 -5 minutes on each side until cooked and golden.
- Serve with the yoghurt and lemon wedges (trust me, this brings out the spices of the dish)
- Eat and enjoy!
