Sweet and savoury, these skewers make a tasty last-minute party app or dinner on the go. We like to call it curry in a hurry!


  • 16 to 20 small wooden skewers

  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce

  • 2 tbsp Indian curry paste

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro, (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 500F. Soak skewers in water for 10 minutes. Line 1 or 2 rimmed baking sheets with foil and brush with vegetable oil.

  • In a large bowl, stir barbecue sauce with curry paste and salt. Cut chicken lengthwise into ½-in. (1-cm) thick strips. Toss with sauce to coat.

  • Thread 1 strip of chicken onto each skewer. Spread out on baking sheets and place in top and bottom thirds of oven until chicken is firm to the touch, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.
