Lean Tandoori Chicken Kabobs


Ingredients for up to 4 servings (or up to 6 skewers):

  • 1lb raw chicken breasts

Tandoori Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic or garlic paste
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger
  • 3/4 cup 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • juice from 1 large lemon
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • Himalayan pink salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 .5 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp allspice


  • thinly sliced red onion
  • cilantro



Step 1

Trim the fat from raw chicken breasts. Then, cut the chicken breasts into long slender pieces to create tenders and set aside.

Step 2

Mix together all of the ingredients for the tandoori sauce in a large bowl. Season to taste with salt & pepper.

Step 3

Add the chicken breast tenders and stir with a spatula, ensuring that all of the tenders are covered. Cover the bowl and store in the refrigerator over night in order to let the chicken marinate. At least 8 hours but better at up to 24 hours.

Step 4

Soak wooden skewers in water for 15 minutes prior to assembling the kabobs in order to keep them from burning when baking in the oven or grilling.

Step 5

Assemble the kabobs by piercing the chicken tenders length-wise so that 2 tenders can cover about 80% of the skewer.

Step 6

If you are using the NuWave Oven, simply set the grill 3-inches from the bottom and place the kabobs on the grill. Set the oven to 350F and select “Cook Time” and set the timer to 8 minutes. If you are using a traditional oven, set the oven to 350F. For best results, place the kabobs on a baking rack. If you do not have one, simply place the kabobs on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.

Step 7

After 8 minutes, turn the kabobs on the other side and cook for an additional 11 minutes. If you are using a traditional oven, follow the same steps and flip the kabobs after 8-10 minutes.

Step 8

Remove the kabobs from the NuWave Oven, or traditional oven, and garnish with fresh lemon juice, thinly sliced red onions and freshly chopped cilantro.
