Tandoori Chicken Kabobs with Yogurt Dip

Jungle Book inspired kabobs were a hit! My kids enjoyed eating the juicy chicken and flavorful veggies. Baloo and Mowgli would have loved this Indian inspired dish! Best served with rice or naan.FSNCE1980



Tandoori Chicken Kabobs with Yogurt dip



2 lbs chicken tenderloins, cut into 1” chunks
1 pint cherry tomotoes
1 green bell pepper, cut into 1” chunks
1 large red onion, cut into 1” chunks
Olive oil



1 cup plain yogurt
Juice from one lemon
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp powdered ginger
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 garlic gloves, peeled
1 Tbsp garam masala
1 ½ tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp smoked paprika
½ tsp cayenne (optional)

Yogurt Dip


1 cup plain yogurt
3 Tbsp reserved marinade
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tsp honey


In blender, combine all of the marinade ingredients and process until smooth. Reserve 3 Tbsps marinade for Yogurt dip in medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

Place chicken into large bowl and add remaining marinade, toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and marinate 2-3 hours. If using wooden skewers, this would be the time to soak them. Soak for at least 30 mins before broiling.

When ready to cook, add tomatoes, peppers, and onions to large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, toss to coat. Pull the chicken from the refrigerator and let come to room temp. Remove the chicken from marinade and skewer alternating chicken, tomatoes, peppers and onion.

Line large baking sheet with aluminum foil and brush with olive oil. Place skewered kabobs in a single layer and place baking sheet 6-inches from heating element and broil on high for 15-20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes until chicken is slightly charred and cooked through. You could also cook on outdoor grill, cooking for 3-5 minutes per side on high heat.

Slightly cool before serving. Garnish with yogurt dip and cilantro.
