Masala Chicken Skewers

Yum

Marsala Chicken Skewers makes a wonderful meat dish that is full of indian spices and baked for a healthy meal. 

I have a confession.. I don't enjoy cutting meat .  If I can buy meat that is cut and prepped beforehand, I always do.   When I find chicken tenders on sale, I stock up because they are already portioned out perfectly for chicken skewers.  

I marinated these chicken tenders in my Masala Chicken Yogurt Marinade and quickly baked them off in the oven for a fuss free dinner that everyone enjoyed.  I also skewered some grape tomatoes and roasted them in the oven for a few minutes on each side for a fun side dish then served it all with yellow rice and a cucumber raita. 
   


Ingredients: 
Around 15-20 chicken tenders or boneless breast/thigh cut into thick strips

Lemon/Chili Rub:
2 Tbs of lemon juice
salt to taste (about 1Tbs)
1/2 tsp of turmeric
1 tsp of red chili powder (or to taste)



Yogurt Marinate:
1 cup of yogurt
1tsp of garam masala
1 Tbs of paprika
1Tbs of cumin
4-5 cloves of garlic grated
2Tbs of grated ginger
1tsp onion powder or some pulverized onion
black pepper

Directions: 
First rub lemon/chili ingredients on chicken.  Then marinate boneless chicken yogurt marinade 4-6 hours (or over night)

Thread chicken on skewers. Then place on a foil lined baking sheet (sprayed with cooking sprayed or lightly greased).  Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-30 minutes (flipping them over once) until cooked through.  ** Cooking time depends on the size and thickness of chicken.  Cook until fully cooked, but not dry.

 Serve with rice, naan, raita or any curry meal.  Enjoy.
