adapted from Alice Waters The Art of Simple Food II

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 cloves of garlic, pounded
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Directions

Prep: 1. Slice chicken into cubes. 2. If wood skewers, soak in water to avoid char. Make: 1. Combine cumin, coriander, garlic, salt, pepper, yogurt, turmeric, cayenne pepper and oil in a bowl; add chicken last to marinade, chill and cover for 30 minutes (longer is fine). 2. Skewer chicken and grill, turning until done, about 5 minutes per side.

Notes

To take it up a notch you can use seeds (cumin, coriander, peppercorns), toast them and crush in a mortar & pestle. If you don't like it spicy just skip the cayenne.
