These Yogurt Marinated Chicken Kebabs can be cooked on a grill as well as in the oven which makes them perfect for the BBQ season as well as other occasions.
Marinating chicken in yogurt helps to tenderize the meat and prevents it from drying out when it’s cooked. All the spices give the chicken a wonderful flavor.
Do you still use a plastic bag for marinating chicken? I prefer using a glass bowl instead. The acid in the marinade can cause the plastic to leach harmful chemicals into the food which I really want to avoid.
In addition, using a bowl is much more environmentally friendly because I don’t need to toss the plastic bag in the garbage – just wash the bowl and the clean up is done.
Another useful grilling tip: if you use wooden skewers, soak them for a few hours before grilling. There are two reasons for doing this: first, it might prevent them catching fire, and second, it will prevent the food from sticking to the wood so that it can slide off easily after grilling.
