Roja has the right ingredients for this dish. I would add 1 tsp of ground green papaya to the marinade. It tenderizes the meat and makes it more juicy and tasteful. Otherwise the recipe is right-on!

  1. In a large bowl, mix the chicken cubes, ginger, garlic, chili powder, turmeric, salt and lemon juice. Leave to marinate in a cool place for at least 2 hours, or in the refrigerator over night.
  2. Place the chicken on a grill tray or in a flame proof dish lined with foil, and baste with oil.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium. Grill the chicken for 15-20 minutes until fully cooked, turning and basting 2-3 times. Serve with lime wedges.
