Serves 4-5

Tender morsels of barbequed chicken, these go well with fries, pita bread and chutneys or dips of your choice.

1 kg
boneless chicken breast, cut into even sized cubes
2 tsp.
chilli powder
1 tbsp.
ginger paste
1 tbsp.
garlic paste
2 tsp.
tandoori masala
1 tsp.
turmeric powder
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp.
4 tbsp.
pinch of red or orange coloring
salt to taste
(approx. 2 tsp.)

Marinate the chicken cubes in all the above ingredients preferably overnight or for at least 4 hours. Skewer them and grill until tender. You can dab a bit of oil on the pieces as they grill. Do not over-cook them, they should be ready within 10-15 minutes. Make sure you turn the skewers several times during the grilling.

Serve hot and enjoy!




Asalaamalikum, which grill are u recommending for this ? a barbq grill or can the grill inside the oven (top) can be used too... wat abt pan frying and then giving them smoke? will the taste be very different?

W/Salaam Samreen, I prefer a bbq grill but yes you can use the oven grill or pan-fry them and give them a smoke. The taste will still be awesome. :)

can we use 1 kg boneless with the same marination.

The recipe requires 1 kg boneless as it is, so yes.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Hi, yes you can. Preheat the oven at 200 C, grill for about 10 minutes per side.

I tried this out and it turned out very good, my kids luved it.. My two year old said "yummy"... Thank you Fauzia...

Made it last night with slight variation, turned out delicious. I used more yoghurt and kept it on heat in a non stick pan for 10-15mins until all the yoghurt was dry. Served with paratha, salad and dip.
Thanks :)

Hi, yes you can.

Assalaamu Alaykum,
If cooking on stove top, should we cover and leave to cook on low heat or should we cook it uncovered on high heat?
Thanks a lot

W/Salaam, uncovered on medium heat.

Assalamu'alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. Can I omit turmeric powder please? Will it make any difference?

W/Salaam, turmeric adds some colour and a light flavour but you can omit if you want.
