Golden Chicken Kebabs

Total Time:

Prep:
4 hr
Cook:
10 min

Yield:
6 to 8 servings with rice
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts or a combination
  • MARINADE:
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (whole-milk or 2%)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon saffron threads, dry-roasted, crumbled to a powder, and dissolved in 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 tablespoon crushed dried mint (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Cut the chicken into small pieces, 1/2-inch cubes or smaller, discarding any fat or tough connective tissue.

  • Combine the yogurt with the remaining marinade ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Place the chicken pieces in a shallow bowl, pour the marinade over, and stir to ensure that all the chicken is well coated. Let stand, refrigerated, for at least 3 hours or as long as 24 hours.

  • Preheat a charcoal or gas grill or a broiler.

  • Thread the chicken pieces onto metal skewers. Place only a few pieces of chicken on each skewer, and don't cram the pieces together tightly. (if they are packed together, rather than just lightly touching, they will not cook evenly.)

  • Grill or broil 5 to 6 inches from the heat, turning the skewers after 3 minutes for about 10 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Serve hot or at room temperature.
