Tandoori Chicken Skewers

Vacation is over, so it's time to start cooking again! We had a fantastic cruise, but boy--I missed being in the kitchen! And all the great dishes we tried have me jonesing for some new recipes. Tonight--tandoori chicken skewers!

I found this recipe a while back, and then lost it in a pile on the kitchen desk. I found it while going through some of the mess and trying to get rid of some clutter.

Tomato-Cucumber Sauce:
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup each diced cucumber, tomato, and radishes
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 clove chopped garlic (cause seriously, every recipe needs garlic!)

Basting Sauce:
1/4 cup each plain yogurt and buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon each ground cumin, chili powder, and salt
Tandoori Chicken:
4 thin-sliced chicken breast cutlets, cut into 3 lengthwise strips

Heated the broiler. Threaded chicken on metal skewers. Brushed with Basting Sauce and broiled on top rack for about 3 minutes. Turned, baste again, and broil about 3 minutes longer. Served with Tomato-Cucumber Sauce and couscous.

Mmm, mmm good! This recipe was quick to put together, and would be great on the grill. So glad to be back in the kitchen!!

Website was being too slow, so maybe I'll post the pic later. Wasn't all that impressive of a picture, but it was yummy.
