Flavorful chargrilled chicken kebab is the perfect party starter and is great for weeknight dinner too! This yogurt marinated Indian spiced chicken kebab will be your favorite grilled chicken from the very first bite!
I sometimes amaze myself! No, not with my culinary skill; I am yet to go a long way before I can boast my own culinary skill. I amazed myself with my stupidity! Today’s recipe of Indian spiced chargrilled chicken kebab should have been published in our blog long back because I had made this chicken kebab uncountable times and we simply freak out on this! Whenever I can’t think of anything innovative to make but still want to treat ourselves with good food, I quickly get some chicken and make this chargrilled chicken kebab. This chicken kebab is best made with skin-on bone-in chicken pieces, so you don’t even need to do any pre-prep for this amazing delicacy!
This Indian spiced chargrilled chicken kebab can be thought of as a second cousin to chicken tandoori which is the flagship smoky kebab from Indian cuisine. The spice combination in chicken tandoori is somewhat different than this chargrilled chicken kebab even though both are made with yogurt-based marinade. But chicken tandoori is traditionally made in big clay oven at a very high heat which is called tandoor; hence the name chicken tandoori. You can make my version of this chicken kebab very easily at home if you have a conventional oven or even a microwave with grilling feature. This chicken kebab is my go-to recipe for any weeknight meal, hence I don’t follow any hard and fast rule to make this; no hung yogurt or Greek yogurt or not even long marinating hours. You can simply use the plain yogurt that you have at hand, marinate it for 30 minutes and call it a day! A restaurant-style chicken kebab as tasty as this cannot get simpler than this!
