Marinated Chicken Skewers

These simple chicken kebabs make a delicious summer lunch idea or easy family dinner. Marinated chicken skewers, stuffed into pittas and serve with one of our refreshing side salads or smother with our easy satay sauce or our easy raita - yum! The chicken is marinated in yoghurt and our tandoori masala blend before cooking on the BBQ or in the oven. 

To make this into an easy chicken curry, add the marinated and cooked chicken pieces to our Basic Curry Sauce Recipe.  Or make our easy Chicken Tikka Masala recipe.
