Garam Masala Chicken Skewers

Garam Masala Chicken Skewers

My friend kindly got me some meat masala all the way from India and decided to get creative in the kitchen and make a couple of Indian inspired recipes. These easy to make garam masala chicken skewers was just one of them. Make a few extras and save them for lunch the next day!

Yield: 12 Skewers | Cooking time: 10 minutes-15 minutes


  • 600g chicken breast fillets, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • Mixed bell peppers,  chopped into large chunks
  • 1 red onion, sliced into squares

Chicken Marinade:

  • 1-2 tbsp Meat masala/Garam masala
  • 90g natural Greek yoghurt
  • 60ml olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • Fresh coriander
  • Pinch of salt and cayenne pepper, to taste

You will also need:


  1.  Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Combine all the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl and mix well with the chicken, ensuring each chicken piece is coated well. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour or up to a day.
  3. Thread a piece of chicken onto a skewer, followed by a chunk of red pepper, then a piece of chicken and a slice of onion. Repeat until you use up all the chicken.
  4. Oil the grate of the griddle before placing the chicken skewers on them. When you’re ready to cook, heat your BBQ or griddle until it’s very hot.
  5. Cook for 10-15 minutes on each side, until the chicken is cooked through.  To check the chicken is cooked, slice opens the largest piece and make sure it’s no pink in the middle.
  6. Sprinkle with coriander, then serve with salad and rice.
