Blessed Are the Peacemakers

A curry dish is not a thumbs up meal for my family, especially the children. I seldom cook curry at home but I have a few dishes which use curry powder or paste in the marinade. This Chicken Tikka In Skewer is one which the kids like.
This is a "curry" in a hurry dish, though it is not a curry dish. It takes less than 20 minutes to cook and serve and it goes well with the family.
I am using chicken breast because it is faster to cook and if done nicely, the meat is very tender and moist. The flavour(spiciness) and colour of this skewered meat depend on the type of curry paste you use. Here, I am using a very mild curry paste. This dish is also good for barbecue and it is low in calorie too. A very simple and tasty dish which I think any kids can do.

Chicken Tikka In Skewer
Serves 1 or 2

1 large chicken breast, cubed
1 tablespoon of curry paste
1/4 tsp salt, if curry paste is not salted
50g natural yogurt
8 cherry tomatoes
chapatis, warmed to serve


  • Soak 4 wooden skewers in a bow of water. Mix the curry paste and yogurt together in a mixing bowl.. Add the cubed chicken and leave aside to marinate (10 minutes) but not more than 30 minutes if using chicken breast. 
  • Heat the the grill pan. Thread the chicken pieces and cherry tomatoes on the skewers. Cook under a medium grill for 10-15 minutes, turning from time to time, until cooked through and nicely browned.
  • Serve with salad or cucumber raita and warm chapatis.

The Beatitudes

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the sons of God.
Matthew 5:9

Our God is God of Peace. True peace begins with a close relationship with God, Those who bring this peace to the people and promoting God's kingdom are the true children of God.


  1. Hi Lian,

    Thanks for linking up to LTU curry event! This looks really easy and definitely something to try during BBQ in summer :)

  2. My kids are slowly adapting to spicy food, so I can cook more curry dishes for them nowadays.

  3. Hi Baby Sumo, my kids are already big kids (16, 18 and 20)haha... Don't know why they still cannot be adapted to spicy food.
