Tandoori Chicken Skewers


This is a delicious recipe that you can use to make roasted tandoori chicken or grilled (broiled) chicken skewers. The skewers are particularly delicious with rice and salad, or in pita/naan bread


Serves 2



  • 225 g (½ lb) chicken, cut into thin long strips
  • 2 T tandoori masala powder
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 2 T natural plain yoghurt
  • 1 t fresh ginger root
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ½ -1 t chili powder (optional)
  • 1 T coriander leaves (cilantro), roughly chopped for garnish (optional)
  • 6-8 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 1 hour



1. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the tandoori masala, lemon juice, yoghurt, ginger, garlic and chili (if using). Marinate the chicken for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator or overnight.

2. Skewer the chicken and grill (broil)* on high for 2-3 minute on each side, or until done. Scatter with coriander leaves (cilantro) if using, enjoy!

* You can also grill them on a barbecue.
