  • 4 medium chicken breasts, skinless, chopped into similar size chunks
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt/Skyr
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus a little more for grilling
  • 1 tsp each: cumin and paprika powders
  • 1/2 tsp each: fine sea salt, onion and garlic granules and ground coriander
  • 1/3 tsp each: cayenne pepper and ginger powder
  • 1/4 tsp each: ground allspice and cinnamon


  • In a large bowl combine the yogurt, 1 tablespoon of the oil, all the spices and stir. Place the chicken pieces in the marinade, stir thoroughly and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  • Prepare the chicken skewers (don't thread the pieces too close to one another). You will need about 6 medium skewers.
  • If you are using a griddle pan heat up 1-2 tablespoons of the oil and grill the chicken over a medium heat for about 8-10 minutes (or until cooked through) turning often. The kebabs can also be barbecued.  Serve with rice, crispy salad or in wraps.
