Tangy Curry Chicken Skewers

Lots of curry and garlic marinated in lemon juice makes for juicy, tender chicken skewers.  The avocado-lime sauce is a yummy dip to serve alongside with these skewers.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 2 chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala optional
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • juice of 1/2 lime


  1. In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and all of the spices. It will be more of a thick paste. Add the chicken strips, and coat with the marinade. Refrigerate for 1-24 hours. 

  2. Preheat the grill to medium-high, and ensure the grill top is oil. Place chicken on skewers, and grill for 10-12 minutes, flipping them once, until they are golden brown and juices run clear. 

  3. In a small bowl, combine avocado, lime juice, mayo, and Greek yogurt. Lightly mash the avocado in with the other ingradients, until you reach a desired consistency. (I prefer mine with small chunks of avocado).

Recipe Notes

If you're using bamboo skewers, don't forget to soak them ahead of time so they do not burn when grilling.
