Ingredients

How to make it

  • Prepare the marinade. Place all the marinade ingredients in a food processor and process until the mixture is smooth. Pour the marinade into a large ziplock, or non-metallic dish.
  • Cut the chicken breasts in 3/4 inch short strips and add them to the marinade. Toss to coat all over. I like to use a ziplock, since you can just toss it away when you are done and there is no clean up. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  • While the chicken is marinating, make the cilantro yogurt. Combine all the ingredients for that in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve. Note: You will probably have some dip leftover. Just use it with your favourite crackers.
  • When the chicken is done marinating, preheat the grill, or use a broiler. Line with foil and spray with a little non-stick cooking spray.
  • Arrange the chicken pieces on the foil and scrunch them slightly so they make wavy shapes (optional), refer to pictures. Grill, or broil for about 5 minutes, turning once, or until golden brown and just cooked. These will cook fast! Overcooking may result in dry chicken.
  • When cool enough to handle, thread 2 pieces on to wooden skewers and serve with the cilantro yogurt dip. You can serve these as a main coarse as well. Goes great with rice.

    I did make Juels Tandoori Chicken Sticks with the Cilantro Yogurt Sauce and they were delicious. Because of the marinade, the chicken came out moist and because of the deep flavor combo of warm spices, it made for a very tasty dish. It paired very well with one of my rice dishes. Wonderful recipe contribution to GR Juels. ~~~Judy~~~

    Wow, you're really kicking it up with these, Julia! Another wonderful dish for the Summer grill. I have never tried tandoori chicken, but your recipe sounds quite easy without the trouble of making an entire chicken. I will definitely be trying these yummy delights! High 5 + a beauty flag! :)

    Winner, Juels, I have all of the ingredients and will make this today. I know that it will be delicious, so I am going to give you a "5". Glad I saw this recipe, it will go well with the rice that I made. I wanted to prepare the chicken breasts differently anyway. ;o) You pictures and instructions are wonderful. Thanks for the recipe! ~~~Judy~~~
