Skewered yogurt honey chicken

This is a delicious and fresh tasting dish. Naturally tenderised by yogurt, the cubed chicken fillets were juicy and flavourful. The honey gives off a subtle sweetness which counterbalances the tart yogurt…this is perfect with fluffy white rice.

# – Today’s dinner!

For the yogurt honey chicken

  • 250 grams of chicken fillet, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoon of pure honey
  • Salt for seasoning
  • A stalk of rosemary or you can use rosemary powder


For the honey yogurt dill sauce

  • 10 tablespoons of plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of pure honey
  • A handful of chopped dill
  • Salt for seasoning

# – First season the cubed chicken fillets with salt.

# – Add 3 tablespoons of yogurt.

# – Followed by a stalk of rosemary. You may pluck the leaves and discard the stalk too (I did this later on as I think the leaves impart flavour better off the stalk).

# – Drizzle two tablespoons of honey.

# – Stir till combined.

# – Now pierce all the chicken fillets together with skewers. Set aside in the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours.

# – In the meantime, pour about 10 tablespoons of plain yogurt into a bowl.

# – Add 1 tablespoon of honey into the yogurt.

# – Dump in the finely chopped dill.

# – Don’t forget the salt!

# – Stir till completely combined and keep chilled in the fridge till ready to be served.

# – When you’re ready to cook, heat up a properly greased griddle. Make sure it’s quite hot but not burning.

# – Place all the skewered chicken onto griddle for about 3 minutes on one side. The smaller your chicken cubes are the faster they cook.

# – Flip them over to cook the other side.

# – Serve them with rice and the yogurt honey dill sauce made earlier.

# – Skewered yogurt honey chicken, DONE!

If you’re not into rice, you could also serve it with boiled potatoes and a nice green salad. Also, if you find the yogurt honey dill sauce a little on the sweet side, you could add a tablespoon of lemon or lime juice to balance up the taste more.

I love it when reasonably healthy dishes turn out exceptionally tasty. Give it a go!
