Directions

  1. Combine yogurt, red onion, lemon juice, ginger, garlic, garam masala, cumin, chili powder, and turmeric in a bowl. Place chicken breasts into yogurt mixture, stir to coat, and marinate overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C). Spray a baking pan with cooking spray.
  3. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and thread onto skewers. Discard used marinade. Lay skewered chicken into baking pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is browned with a few blackened spots and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest piece should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Delicious chicken! I up all the spices a bit (we like things spicy!) and also cook them over the bbq. They turn out amazing every time!
