Gluten Free Coriander Chicken Kebabs (with Cilantro Yogurt Dip)

Gluten Free Coriander Chicken Kebabs |

I love Indian food…I think I could eat it everyday.  This gluten free coriander chicken kebab recipe is fantastic.  We were able to grill the kebabs outside on one of our sunny Colorado days, though I’m sure you could do this in the oven.  The cilantro yogurt dip that accompanies the kebabs is simple and easy to whip up.  Enjoy!





  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (or less if you don’t like heat)
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless organic chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces


Cilantro Yogurt Sauce

  • 1/2 cup fat-free plain greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp cream (optional)
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1 fair pinch dried ginger
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


In a mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, 1/2 tsp lemon zest, 2 cloves garlic, coriander, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Place chicken pieces in a large resealable bag and pour marinade over chicken. Seal bag and press chicken into marinade. Allow to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. Thread chicken onto skewers (if using wooden skewers soak in warm water for 5 minutes). Preheat a grill over medium-high heat. Brush grill lightly with oil and grill chicken, rotating once halfway through grilling, until cooked through, about 9 minutes. Serve warm with Lemon Cilantro Yogurt Sauce.
