I was really sorry as I finished my skewer, I would like to have more of them!
The spice blend was exceptional and I loved the big portion of cardamom in them!
I baked the skewers with the grill in the kitchen oven and worked perfectly. I added some red peppers and I served the skewers som balkan yogurt and hummus with them.
A great recipe to recommend!

I had 4-5 chicken breasts (would have preferred thighs) used them in this recipe. First, they were
pounded to 12/" thickness. Used our Lodge cast iron griddle and cooked them each
side about 6-7 minutes. Garnished with blooming chives but I would have preferred fresh cilantro but had none on hand. Substituted fresh turmeric for dried. Next time I'll be sure to have chicken thighs for this recipe as that is what we prefer. Served with leftover My Couscous Salad, asparagus and crusty bread. Good!

Sorry but this didn't work as well for us. DH didn't complain but he didn't say he loved it and we grilled it on our new bbq, I didn't like the flavour too much I guess I prefer cardamom in sweet dishes and chicken breast for skewers. DD1 (4 years old) said she liked it. I used freshly ground cardamom, freshly squeezed lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, chicken thigh and leg meat, plus mushrooms and white and purple onion on the skewers as well.
