Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp Tomato paste
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic minced
  • 1/8 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 Medium yellow onion cut into chunks.

For the mint yogurt dip:

  • 1/2 Cup Non-fat Plain Greek yogurt (or coconut yogurt for paleo)
  • 1/4 Cup Cucumber, grated
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Fresh garlic, minced
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh mint, roughly chopped, plus additional mint for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • In a large bowl combine the tomato paste, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, cumin powder, garlic, cinnamon and olive oil. Mix well.
  • Add in the cut up chicken and stir to coat. The mixture is very thick, and I found it much easier to use my hands to really rub the tomato paste mixture all over the chicken. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours - overnight (the longer the better!)
  • Preheat your grill to medium heat and lightly spray with cooking spray.
  • Using sharp skewer sticks, alternate between pieces of chicken and onion, piercing each piece and sliding it to the end, building a "stack" of skewered ingredients as you go.
  • Place the skewers on the grill and cook until no longer pink inside, about 12 minutes, turning every 3 minutes so you cook the chicken on each side.
  • While the chicken cooks, place the grated cucumber into a kitchen towel and ring out the excess water.
  • Add the cucumber, and all the other sauce ingredients, into a medium food processor and blend until smooth, well mixed, and the mint gets broken down.
  • Garnish the skewers with fresh mint and serve with yogurt sauce.
  • DEVOUR.
