D used the recipe in the link above, but with a few changes as noted below:

Spiced Grilled Chicken Skewers

  • 1 1/2 lb. chicken tenders
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 tsp. curry powder
  • 2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Salt and black pepper

Cucumber sauce

  • 1 grated cucumber
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp dill weed
  • salt and black pepper

Step 1

Same as recipe in above link – but we didn’t have naan.

Step 2

Replace step 2 in the recipe with this recipe for cucumber sauce:

Mix yogurt, grated cucumber, garlic, dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper together. Refrigerate until needed.

Serve cucumber dip with chicken.

The spices in the chicken were fantastic: spicy, flavorful, but not overwelming. The chicken took on a wonderful color from the smoked paprika and grilling. D nailed the cook of the chicken which was tender and juicy. D’s decision to go with the cucumber sauce really worked for us. We dipped each bite of the chicken in the sauce and it made for a fresh counter-point to the strong chicken flavors. Truly memorable dish! Hope you enjoy!
