Steps to make Chicken Skewers

  • Step 1 : For marination, add all the spices to the yogurt and mix meticulously with the chicken, cover and place in the refrigerator for as little as 30 minutes or as long as overnight. Really, just depends on your patience level.
  • Step 2 : Preheat the oven at 360°F and soak the skewer sticks in water for at least 30 minutes.
  • Step 3 : Now jab in the marinated chicken pieces through the skewer sticks and lay them flat on the baking grill.
  • Step 4 : Let them cook for about 40 minutes, turning them half-way. You can also cook them on a barbecue grill, for a charred, smoky flavor.
