 We made Yogurt Marinaded Chicken Skewers the other night when it was way too hot to think about turning on the oven or even the stove top for that matter.

It's one of those recipes that's perfect for a change up from the traditional BBQ chicken and one of my easy go to recipes for the grill.

I made this one with greek yogurt, cilantro, garlic and ginger for a flavor explosion.The yogurt helps keep the chicken moist and full of flavor. 

If you don't have plain greek yogurt feel free to use plain yogurt, I've used both over the years and they both turn out tasty. 

Here's the recipe for these moist little chunks of chicken on a stick aka BBQ Yogurt Marinaded Chicken Skewers.

A glass blender jar filled with plain greek yogurt, cilantro, garlic cloves, lime juice, ginger, olive oil, lime juice, cumin, turmeric, and curry powder.

In a blender or food processor combine: 
  • 1 cup Plain Greek or Regular Yogurt
  • 2/3 cup Cilantro
  • 5 cloves Garlic (you know to keep the vampires away)
  • 1 tablespoon Freshly Grated Ginger
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon Curry Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
Blend until smooth and creamy.

If using wooden skewers make sure to soak for a few hours in water to help prevent skewers from catching fire.
