This is a recipe that I developed from a mixture of recipes, adapting to our tastes. I hope you enjoy it :) Time to make doesn't include time to marinate. Cooking time is an estimate, depending on how hot your grill is and how big your chicken cubes are. :)

Made this today and it was very yummy. Nice mix of flavors. Also very simple to make. I only used 1/4 teaspoon cayenne and that was plenty of spice for us.

I loved this recipe! What great flavor. I did not have yogurt so I used some sour cream and it didn't seem to affect thet taste at all. I will definitely make this one again. Thanks for posting.

Great recipe! Fixed this last nite on the grill and we loved it. I used more cayenne than called for...used 2 Tablespoons and I also sprinkle more cayenne on right before I brushed with olive oil. I did not use the tumeric. Loved it sprinkled with lime juice while eating and we also used blue cheese dressing to dip it in. Thanks for the recipe.
