Number of Servings: 4


    2-skinless boneless chicken breasts
    1 tsp curry powder
    1/2 tsp turmeric, ground
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp kosher salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp light brown sugar
    1/2 tsp smoked paprika
    1/4 tsp cayenne (scale down for less heat)
    1/2 tbsp freshly minced garlic
    2 tbsp chopped cilantro
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 small yellow onion, diced
    12-6in wooden skewers


The cayenne pepper is optional but in my opinion, it gives this chicken a great hot Indian flavor. The smoked paprika is essential, most grocery stores carry it.


1. Soak about 12-6inch wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes.
2. Cut chicken breasts into 3-inch long thin strips and place in a large ziplock bag.
3. Next, add all the ingredients to the bag, seal, and shake vigorously to insure all ingredients are combined and are coating the chicken evenly.
3. Now, you can go ahead and skewer the chicken strips or you can let it marinate in the bag in your refrigerator for up to 24 hours and then skewer.
4. To cook the chicken skewers, heat an outdoor grill on high heat, now add the skewers and cook until you have nice brown grill marks then flip to finish the other side. Chicken is done when firm but still juicy and registers to 165 degrees F. Serve as an appetizer or even with fresh veggies and butter leaf lettuce to make lettuce wraps.
