Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 can (5.4 ounces) unsweetened coconut cream
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons tandoori seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • Kosher salt, as desired
  • Ground black pepper, as desired
  • 4–5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 10–12 skewers (depending on size)
  • 6 pieces prepared naan bread, cut in half


  • Large Bowl
  • Skewers
  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut cream, yogurt, and seasonings. Add the chicken and toss until evenly coated. Transfer the bowl into the refrigerator and let marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight.

  • Step 2

    When the chicken is marinated, thread chicken onto metal or soaked wooden skewers, about 6 to 7 pieces per skewer.

  • Step 3

    To install the grill grate, position it flat on top of the heating element so it sits in place, then close the hood.

  • Step 4

    While holding the smoke box open, use the pellet scoop to pour pellets into the box until filled to the top.

  • Step 5

    Select GRILL. Select WOODFIRE FLAVOR. Set temperature to HI and time to 15 minutes. Select START to begin preheating (preheating will take approximately 10 minutes).

  • Step 6

    When unit beeps to signify it has preheated and ADD FOOD is displayed, open hood and add the skewers on the grill grate horizontally. Close the hood to begin cooking.

  • Step 7

    After 5 minutes, open hood and, using silicone-tipped tongs, flip the skewers. Close hood and continue to cook for 5 more minutes. Cooking is complete when an instant-read thermometer reads 165F.

  • Step 8

    When cooking is complete, open hood, remove skewers from grill, and let rest. Add naan bread to grill grate, close hood, and grill for about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove naan and serve alongside skewers.
