Chicken tikka and vegetables on skewers!!
1 lb chicken breast cut into about 1"cubes
2/3 cup yoghurt
1 tbsp chopped ginger
1 tbsp chopped garlic
½ pickled jalapeno( optional)
Juice of 2 lemons
1 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp Garam masala powder( available at Indian grocery stores)
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese for making the marinade creamy
Mix all the above ingredients together and salt as per taste. Add the chicken. For the recipe to be more colorful, add cubed red and green peppers, mushrooms and red onions.
Its best when its marinated overnight but in a hurry one hour is fine too.
On individual skewers arrange the chicken and the vegetables. Spray some PAM and grill.
Can be eaten with a fresh and crunchy salad or wrapped in low carb tortillas.
