Chipotle Kebabs

Whenever I entertain, I’m always looking for appetizer ideas that will impress my guests and set the tone for the celebration. Often I gravitate towards fusion appetizers as I love to blend cultures. My friend, Ravish Kohly showed me how to make a mouthwatering marinade with Chipotle and other spices and tips and tricks for the perfect BBQ. These are so succulent, it’s definitely worth a try!


1 lb boneless chicken thigh

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

4 tsps ground chipotle powder

4 tsps ginger garlic paste

4 tsps tomato paste

2 tsps garlic powder

1 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp garam masala

2 tsps onion powder




First marinade – add some salt, oil and Worcestershire sauce to the chicken.

In a food processor add the chipotle powder, ginger and garlic paste, tomato paste, garlic powder, turmeric and garam masala and grind to a thick paste in a little oil.

Add the paste to the chicken and add 2 tsps of onion powder and work the protein to make it tender.

This can be left to marinate in the fridge for 2-3 days by adding some vinegar to the meat if required.

Best over hot charcoal, skewer the meat and cook for 10 – 15 mins on metal skewers turning to prevent burning.

Simply snip of any burned bits with a kitchen scissors.
