Marinated grilled chicken cubes - shish tawouk style

When you want something easy, yet delicious - with minimal effort - why not make these and enjoy them as they are, or in a wrap, in bread, over a salad...the options are plentiful! I wanted to put them on skewers but we didn't have any, so putting them as they are on the grill it had to be - and I was pleased with the outcome.

I have made shish tawouk before but this has a different take on the marinate :)

  • Skill level: Easy
  • Serves: 4-5 people
  • Preparation time: Will vary depending on how long you wish to marinate it
  • Cooking time: 15-20 min total

What you will need:

2 boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
2 tbsp plain yoghurt
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp hot chilli sauce

How to make:

1) In a bowl, add the ingredients listed above, mix well - cover - and leave in the fridge to marinate. You can do this for as short as 15 minutes or overnight if you preferred

2) Place rack over a foiled tray, then place the chicken pieces one by one onto the rack. Place any remaining marinate over the chicken. Place in the oven for 7-10 minutes on 200 degrees Celsius, before turning the chicken round and leaving for a further 5 minutes or until cooked through

You may wish to serve this up in many ways, but whichever way you choose, I hope you enjoy :)
