Preparation steps

1.

For the chicken: Rinse the chicken, pat dry and cut into cubes. Peel the garlic and ginger and finely chop. Mix the ginger, garlic, lemon zest and yogurt together. Add the spices and season with pepper. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and let marinate for about 2 hours in the refrigerator.

2.

For the rice: Rinse the rice until the water runs clear. Bring 2 3/4 cups water to a boil with 1 teaspoon salt, add the rice, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes.

3.

Preheat the broiler or grill. 

4.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on 8-12 wooden skewers. Place on a baking tray, season with salt and broil for about 8 minutes, until golden brown, turning occasionally and brushing with the marinade.

5.

Arrange the rice and skewers on serving plates and sprinkle with basil.
