Prep Time:15 mins
Cook Time:30 mins
Total Time:45 mins
Yield:6 to 8 portions 1x
3 pounds skinless boneless chicken, cut into 1-inch cubes
salt and pepper
For the marinade:
1 cup plain 3% yogurt
2 Tbsp lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 Tbsp mustard seeds
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
You will also need:
Metal or wooden skewers
In a large bowl, mix all marinade ingredients.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add the chicken pieces to the marinade making sure that the chicken is all covered in the marinade. (You can also do it in a plastic bag. I prefer using glass bowls because the acid in the marinade might cause the plastic to leach harmful chemicals into the food. In addition, I think it’s much more environmentally friendly).
Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge. Let the chicken marinate for 3 to 6 hours.
Once ready to cook, thread chicken onto skewers and cook on the grill or in the oven until cooked through. (If you cook it in the oven, preheat the oven to 400F and cook for about 25 minutes until no longer pink inside.)
