What do I need to make these Chicken Tandoori Kebabs?

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

To make these Chicken Tandoori Kebabs you’ll need some kebab skewers which you can pick up from Amazon.

These ones are particularly good as they are flat, and therefore easier to turn over as the meat won’t slip round (speaking from experience, I can assure you!)

If you choose to use the bamboo barbecue skewers just make sure to soak them in water for a while first to prevent them from burning in the barbecue or oven.

You can use your skewers to make one of our other kebab recipes, like this Chicken Kebab, which has been sooooo popular over on our Facebook Group!

  1. I’ve bought natural yoghurt instead of the Greek natural yoghurt. Silly question, but will it still work? Thank you
