Cajun chicken kebabs are delectable grilled treats that are perfect for any time of the day. It is a great dish for parties too. Pair it with corn, coleslaw or salad for a heartier meal.
2 lbs. chicken breast fillets
16 x 25cm bamboo skewers, soaked in warm water for 30 minutes
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup Cajun Spice Mix
16 small tortillas
Lemon wedges for serving
For the minted yogurt dip:
500g Greek-style or unflavored yogurt
1/3 cup finely chopped mint leaves
Slice the chicken breast fillets into bite sized cubes. Thread three cubes on a soaked bamboo skewer and then put the kebab in a rectangular dish or container with a tight lid.
Next, combine the lemon juice, Cajun spice mix and oil in a small bowl. Whisk it with a fork until it is well combined. Pour the mixture over the skewers. Cover the container and refrigerate for at least 2 hours up to overnight.
To prepare the minted yogurt, place the unflavored yogurt and mint leaves in a bowl. Mix well. Season it with salt and pepper to taste. Squeeze in some lemon juice if desired. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
Grill the chicken skewers for 5-6 minutes per side or until they are cooked and the edges are browned. Serve immediately with tortillas, minted yogurt and lemon wedges on the side.
