Grilled chicken kabab

grilled chicken kababs
Kababs are V’s favorite way of eating chicken.  So I make these simple kababs very often. I bake them most of the times, but when there is shortage of time, I like to grill them. I made these for a office outing few days ago. Simple, easy and very tasty.

1 lb (0.4 kg) chicken
1 tea spn chilli powder
2 tbl spn thick yogurt
1/2 tea spn ginger paste
1/2 tea spn garlic paste
Spice powder(make a powder) –
3-4 cloves
1″ cinnamon
1/2 tea spn coriander seeds

Add all the ingredients to chicken and leave it for around 1-2hrs.
Grill them till they are done.
Serve with some lemon wedges.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 20mins

  1. I have a very similar quick fix recipe for chicken kabobs too, but I always make it in the oven. Did you use your grill pan? Love the grill marks on it.

    Shilpa: Yes, I love the pan 🙂

  2. Is the chicken used Boneless? I am having some boneless chicken and was looking for a quick and yummy recipe. Thanks for this recipe. Mouthwatering pic too!!!!

    Shilpa: Yes, it is boneless chicken.

  3. Wow!!! Did you grill it in grill pan over the gas stove or in the electric grilling machine. Whenever I grill in the electric grill, I never get that perfect blackish tinge (like restaurant ones). How you managed to do that? How long you need to grill the chicken? Your grilled chicken kabab looks so mouthwatering. Thanks for the recipe.

    Shilpa: I grilled on grill pan on the stove.

  4. Hi Shilpa

    Did you use boneless chikcen for this ?

    Looks almost like home-made Tandoori Masala !!!

    Whenever I cook chicken, it is never succulent and moist like they serve in the restaurants. DO you know how to achieve this ? Do you think they use meat tenderizer ?

    Shilpa: Yes, boneless chicken. I don’t know about tenderizer. But try with tender breast pieces(you get these in the meat isle with all other different cuts of chicken), they work the best. Do not use the frozen chicken. Do not cook for long time, remove as soon as they are done. I cover the grill with a aluminum foil while grilling, so the moisture is retained. I use kashmiri chilli powder from Indian store for the red color.

  5. Another good one, you really make the most difficult dishes
    seem very easy.I liked the grilled pomfret one too.

  6. The grilled chicken looks good.
    I have been visiting your site when I was a non-blogger…Just love your recipes. I tried many of your recipes and I must say this site is simply wonderful… I have added it to my blog list so that I can keep track of all the new dishes you post 🙂

  7. Hi Shilpa,

    I always follow your website and love all your recipes. This recipe is now a super hit in our home now. Thanks for all your effort.

  8. From the picture it looks very good. Surely will try. Shilpa has nice ideas! By the way, are the cinnmon & cloves added after grilled?
    Best Regards

  9. Can I use ready made tandoori masala instead of making the spice pwd? If yes, which brand would you recommend?Thanks!

  10. Hi Shilpa, Could you please tell us in your recipe how long you cook on the grill pan, how long for each side of the pieces, do you turn it often or just once for each side, and do you cook initially on high and then turn to medium or low to get the grill marks? Thanks!

    1. I turn only once. I grill them on high first and then slightly lower the heat, to get it cooked through (sometimes I cover with a aluminum foil, not necessary, but I have seen it makes cooking easier). I don’t know the exact time as I grill them till done, never check for time

  11. hey shilpa.ur recipes are great…………i am learner in cooking so just following ur recipesf from this blog………..and recived many compliments too….credit goes to u………….well i dont know how to grill in stove neither in oven can u plz guide me on stove

  12. Shilpa,
    grill pans though available in Mumbai ,are not easy to get.I’m going to ask someone to get for me frm US.Can u suggest any specific brand?also some idea about the cost.

  13. i think kababs are the one in which the ingredients are minced together , especially the basic ones are shaped elongated or round or square shapes and then grilled or baked(at times). and served the chutneys or sauces.

    the grilled chicken tht u have shown is called as tikka.
    i believe i am right. 🙂

  14. The kababs are delicious..add some pudina and in masala add a soump/badishep… donot add any artificial colours…you have posted very delicious recipes and it is good hosting too.

  15. Hi shilpa, ur recipes are sooo wonderful just love them:)so this grilling doesnot require oil??also i wanted menskai recipe….please post it:)also recipes done with jackfruit
