Yogurt Chicken Kebabs Recipe

Ingredients for 4 hearty kabobs

* Optional Substitution Note
  • 1 1/4 lb chicken breast, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • Marinade
    • 3/4 cup plain yogurt (I used YQ plain)
    • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
    • juice from 1 lemon
    • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
    • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (optional)
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • Utensils
    • wooden skewers
    • 1 teaspoon cumin


Step 1

Mix together the ingredients for a marinade in a bowl.  Place the chicken breast in a sealable plastic bag then pour in the marinade.  Squeeze out all the air from the bag and seal it closed.  Mix and mash the bag to completely cover every piece of chicken.

Step 2

Marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour but for best results, marinate overnight.

Step 3

After marinating, assemble the kabobs.  Set oven to 420F.  Evenly divide the kabob pieces into 5 separate wooden skewers. Discard the leftover marinade from the chicken.

Step 4

Place the kabobs on a baking rack or baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until the outside edges are brown and the chicken is cooked through.

Step 5

Garnish with fresh cilantro or chives and enjoy with your choice of side for meal prep. I suggest a fragrant jasmine or basmati rice and steamed veggies.

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
