Cumin Scented Chicken w/Blue Cheese Tzatziki Sauce
Recipe by April Thompson, chef/owner Sweet Chicks Custom Cupcakes and Wild Thymez Personal Chef Services
- ¼ cup cumin
- 24 skewers (soaked in water overnight)
- 2 lbs chicken breast cut into 1” pieces
- 2 tbsp crushed garlic
- 1 tbsp kosher salt
- Cracked black pepper
- Olive oil
- 1 container crumbled blue cheese
- 3 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tbsp. vinegar
- 2 tbsp. minced garlic
- ¼ tsp white pepper (if you have it)
- 1 cup greek yogurt
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 english cucumbers (peeled and diced)
- 1 tsp. chopped fresh dill
Preheat oven to 465 degrees.
Combine all sauce ingredients into a food processor EXCEPT fresh dill and pulse on low for 30 seconds. Place in a bowl, garnish with dill and refrigerate.
Assemble chicken on skewers and place on a foil covered cookie sheet that has been drizzled with olive oil (to create a non-stick surface). Combine 4 tbsp of olive oil, pepper, kosher salt, garlic and cumin in a small bowl and drizzle the mixture over each chicken skewer. Bake for 20 minutes, and garnish with parsley flakes if desired once skewers are done.
