I made this for Zaar Stars and I loved it. Nice and spicy, and very quick to put together. I did cut the cayenne to about 2 teaspoons and it still had a nice zing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  2. Slice the chicken into thin pieces. Sprinkle with the seasoning mix, and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Thread the chicken onto skewers and brush with the oil.
  4. Grill or broil for 3 minutes on each side, or until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Note: if using wooden skewers, soak them for at least half an hour before using to avoid burning!
