    This is a Low fat recipe by Delia smith. No need for oil the chicken is moist and tender and great flavour. Good served with a fresh coriander (cilantro) chutney. I served mine with a low fat coleslaw, boiled rice cooked in vegetable stock with fresh coriander and spring onions and a vegetable curry.

      I really liked these! I had to sub milk plus vinegar for the buttermilk, and chili sauce for the chile, but otherwise I made as written. The turmeric gives a beautiful yellow color to the chicken, and the bay leaves a very fragrant, distinct flavor. I almost left the bay out, as my plant is nearly dead, but I was able to scavenge a few good leaves, and boy, am I glad I did! This would not be the same without it. The leaves charred to ash on the ends of the skewers, but imparted such a lovely flavor and fragrance! If nothing else, I'll use this marinade again, as the chicken was very tender and well flavored. Too wet and windy to grill today, so I broiled on the second level of the oven for 6 minutes on each side. Thanks for posting a great recipe!
