READY IN: 24hrs 20mins
YIELD: 15 tikkas




  • In a food processor/blender, mix cilantro leaves, mint leaves, scallion, bell pepper, cumin powder, green chili and garlic cloves.
  • Add oil to the above mixture and blend to form a smooth paste.
  • Remove the prepared green mixture in to a zip lock bag along with the chicken tenders.
  • Seal the bag and massage the marinade in to the chicken tenders. Place this bag in the refrigerator overnight or for at least ten hours.
  • Use skewers to place the marinated chicken tenders. Sprinkle salt on each side of them.
  • Heat the grill and rub it with some oil. Place the skewers on it to get grill marks on each side and cook until the chicken is done.
  • Drizzle some fresh lemon juice and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce and loved ones!
  • Tips: If salt is added in the marinade, it will extract moisture from the vegetables and leaves. This will result in a watery marinade, which is not desired.
