Yoghurt Marinated Grilled Chicken Skewers

We’ve discovered that children do indeed finish their dinner when offered options that aren’t the standard bland or fried fare that’s often pedalled to children. Children can be taught to enjoy various foods, flavors and spices so long as they’re introduced to them repeatedly and in meals that are easy to consume. Chicken tenders are so often fried, and the health implications of regular dinners of fried foods on children have proven to be drastic on the health of children globally. By offering foods that children, even those as young as 2, can feed themselves, helps them develop an appreciation for and relationship with healthy food. 

Marinades help us prep meals by adding flavor with quick and easy shortcuts and ingredients. Take the humble yoghurt: owing to its ability to slowly tenderize chicken rather than toughen the chicken meat with acidic lemon and vinegar-based marinades, yoghurt can help you make a boring chicken dinner exciting and delicious for both adults and children alike. 

Our recipe for yoghurt marinated grilled chicken skewers requires about 10 minutes of preparation time and about two hours of marination. If serving these skewers to young children, take the chicken off the skewers so that you can avoid the danger of them poking themselves with it.

8 de-skinned chicken thick tenders

2 cups Greek yoghurt 

4 tablespoons chicken shawerma spice 

Juice of ½ large lemon

Pinch of salt 

1 yellow bell pepper

1 red bell pepper

8 wooden skewers



Step 1

Combine the Greek yoghurt, chicken shawarma spice, lemon juice and pinch of salt in a bowl and mix until fully combined. 


Step 2

Cut your chicken tenders into pieces so that they can be skewered neatly with pieces of red and yellow bell pepper as dividers between each piece. 


Step 3

Marinate your chicken in the marinade in a deep bowl. You can cover the bowl and place in the fridge for up to 4 hours. 


Step 4

Wet your skewers so that they don’t burn when in the oven. Turn your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. 


Step 5

Skewer your chicken pieces uniformly with the bell peppers as dividers. Drizzle some olive oil on a baking tray and place your chicken skewers on the tray. Pop into the oven. 


Step 6

After about 15 minutes, check on your chicken skewers and turn them over to ensure they’re evenly cooked. Should be about another 10 minutes before they’re ready. 


Step 7

Serve with a side salad, rice, or quinoa.
