Getting Healthy from the Inside Out

Curried Chicken Skewers

Eaten as an appetizer or a light meal, this dish is sure to please! All sorts of flavours make it a win for most every taste! A little spicy, a little sweet, and the sauce is delightfully cooling! Best part, left over sauce can be used as a dressing in a wrap or on a salad!

30 Servings 

Sauce:

  • 3/4 cup plain low fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup low fat sour cream
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint
  • 2 scallions, sliced thin
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Mix all ingredients well, cover and refrigerate 1 hour to 1 day to allow all flavours to blend.

Chicken:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, frozen for 30 minutes

1) Combine all ingredients in a bowl, except chicken, and mix well.

2) Slice partially frozen chicken diagonally, into long thin strips, about 1/4 inch wide. Partially freezing chicken will make slicing easier. Add to honey mixture, toss and coat evenly. Marinade will be very thick, so well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour up to a day.

3) Weave marinated chicken slices onto bamboo skewer.

4) Position oven rack 6 inches from heating element and heat the broiler. Line the bottom of the broiler pan with tin foil, cover with slotted broiler pan top, and coat with non-stick spray. Place 1/2 the chicken skewers on the broiler rack, covering the bare ends with foil to prevent burning. Broil for about 8 minutes until fully cooked, flipping 1/2 way through. Repeat with remaining chicken skewers.

5) Serve with sauce.
