  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Zest one lemon
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Red onions (for threading onto skewers)


Make the Marinade:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, olive oil, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and minced garlic.
  2. Stir the ingredients until well combined, forming a rich, aromatic marinade.

Prep the Chicken and Thread onto Skewers:

  1. Trim any excess fat and gristle from the chicken thighs.
  2. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces.
  3. Thread the chicken pieces onto skewers, alternating with slices of red onions.
  4. If you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent charring on the grill.

Marinate the Chicken:

  1. Place the skewers on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  2. Brush the marinade generously over the meat, ensuring each piece is well coated.
  3. Cover the skewers and let them marinate in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight.
