    justcallmetoni's Note:

    As a big fan of yogurt based marinades for chicken (for example Chicken Tikka), this one immediately caught my eye. Unlike Tikka, you only marinate this one for 30-45 minutes so it doesn't require much planning ahead. I have not tried this one yet but wanted to make it public for the Zaar World Tour. Cooking time include time to marinate the chicken.

      This was a really great recipe. I had to add a few more spices to give it an extra kick, but all in all, it's a solid and easy dish to make. It looks terrific once you open the lid and reveal the skewers. I'd recommend this recipe to those who want to cook for others and provide them with a visually appealing dish that also has a unique taste!

      I am updating my review from 2007 since I still make this on occasion. I adore this recipe and have started to use quinoa as a starch to go with it. It comes out so yummy every time. Also, very low calorie for people wanting to diet.

      Well I guess I'm in the minority. Made this last night and was supremely disappointed. VERY bland and tomatoes a bad addition.
