  • 150 g natural yogurt yogurt
  • 2 tbsp tikka curry paste
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 250 g pack cherry tomatoes
  • 1 pepper
  • 1 red onion


  • Put 8 wooden skewers in some water to soak before you begin.

Prepare the chicken marinade

  • Mix the yoghurt with the curry paste in a mixing bowl.
  • Cut the chicken in to bite sized cubes, then add them to your bowl. Mix it all together and if you have the time, leave it to marinate for an hour or so.

Prepare the vegetables.

  • Cut the onion and pepper into chunks and lay on a plate or tray ready with the cherry tomatoes, ready to add to your skewers.

Make the tikka skewers

  • Thread the chicken, peppers, onion and cherry tomatoes on to each skewer – making sure you get a nice mixture of each element on each skewer.

Cook the chicken tikka skewers

  • Place each kebab on a grill pan and cook them under a medium grill for 15-20 minutes, turning them a few times so they cook on all sides. They're ready when the chicken has cooked through.
  • Serve them with chapatis, salad and some natural yoghurt on the side.
