Chicken Skewers

Chicken Skewer

Chicken skewers are something all will enjoy anytime. It’s easy and not time consuming at all (hmm…don’t think about cleaning the grill now).
It’s a simple preparation, but chicken pieces on a stick somehow taste better. Kids will really enjoy.

This can be cooked on a pan on stovetop as well. Cover and cook till done and then increase the flame to brown the chicken pieces.

Chicken Skewers

2 chicken breast cut into bite size pieces
2 tbsp Cajun spice (recipe below) or any marinade of your choice
1 tsp vinegar
1 tbsp oil
Bamboo skewers

Place the bamboo skewers in water at least 30 minutes. (It prevents from burning the skewers)
Marinate all ingredients for minimum 30 minutes or overnight.
Thread 4-5 pieces on each skewer and grill for 4-5 minutes each side.
Serve hot.

Next time, I am going to alternate chicken pieces with vegetables as well.

Cajun spice:
3 tsp paprika
2 ½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp pepper powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cayenne( I use crushed red chili flakes)
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
Mix all and store in a glass container.

Try different marinades on few sticks.
– tandoori masala mixed with yogurt
– soya sauce and crushed red chilies
– chili powder, cumin powder and vinegar
– chili powder and garam masala, lemon juice
– ginger/garlic paste and chili powder
