Chicken Kebab Recipe

Indian-spiced Chicken Kebabs with Coriander-mint Sauce


I found this delicious Indian Spiced Chicken Kebab Recipe while searching through a friend's recipe collection. Kebabs require a bit of extra preparation with marinade and threading them onto the wooden sticks but they are worth the effort.



The recipe below includes a corinader-mint dipping suace that goes so well with the fragrant tikka curry marinade. You can also thread pieces of vegetables such as zucchini (baby marrow) or green peppers or dried apricots between the chicken breast cubes. (See photo above).

This chicken kebab recipe makes approximately 16 kebabs depending on whether or not you use vegetable pieces inbetween the chicken meat and how long your kebab sticks are.

Preparation time: 40 minutes, plus marinating time about 2 hours

Cooking time: 10 minutes

How To Make Chicken Kebabs and Corinader Mint Sauce

  1. To make the Coriander Mint Sauce: Process all the sauce ingredients in a food processor until smooth and refrigerate.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for the kebabs except the chicken cubes in a large bowl.
  3. Add the chicken breast cubes to the marinade and stir to make sure they all get coated.
  4. Cover and marinate for two hours or overnight in the refigerator.
  5. Preheat the oven grill.
  6. Thread the chicken onto wooden skewers and grill for approximately four minutes on each side or until you can see the chicken is cooked through. Not too long though or you'll dry them out.
  7. Serve warm or cool with sauce.
