Chicken & Melon Kabobs

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts.
  • 1 carton of plain yogurt.
  • 1 tsp of turmeric.
  • 1 tsp of grated fresh root ginger.
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed.
  • ½ tsp of cinnamon.
  • 4 whole cloves.
  • 1 cantaloupe melon.

Directions

  1. Cut Chicken into bite size pieces.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the plain yogurt, turmeric, grated ginger, crushed garlic, cinnamon and cloves.
  3. Add the chunks of chicken and stir thoroughly to coat the flesh with the yogurt mixture.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to soak into the chicken.
  5. Cut the cantaloupe melon in half. Remove the seeds and skin from the melon, and then cut into thin crescents or chunks.
  6. Thread the chicken and melon onto skewers.
  7. Brush the melon and chicken with the yogurt marinade, then cook under a medium griller/broiler or over moderately hot barbecue coals until the chicken is just cooked. Turn during the cooking and brush with yogurt marinade a few times.
  8. If desired, heat through any leftover marinade and serve as a sauce with the kebabs.
