I donno who has invented the idea of marinated bite-sized chicken pieces threaded onto skewers and grill them. I believe this is one of the brilliant food ideas ever invented so far.
My hubby is damm crazy about kebabs. Although, kebab is made with lamb but I like to have chicken kebabs. The perfect marination of all the spices imparts an exotic aroma to kebabs.
With summer around, chicken kebab is perfect option to enjoy BBQ and surprise your guests with this exceptionally tasteful starter.
1 boneless chicken breast
1/2 green bell pepper (cubed)
1/2 red onion (cubed)
1 tbsp yougurt
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp red chilli pwd
1 tsp tandoori masala
1/4 tsp turmeric pwd
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1 inch ginger root, peeled and grated
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
2-3 bamboo or metal skewers
2 tsp oil
Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces. Marinate with lemon juice and keep it aside for 15 mins. Now marinate with remaining marination ingredients. Also, mix onion and bell pepper pieces to it. Leave it for atleast 1 hr but preferably overnight.
Preheat oven to its maximum temperature. Thread the chicken pieces with onion and bell pepper pieces onto the skewers. Set aside.
Place the kebabs on the lower rack of the oven, brush it with oil and grill them at 375 F. Cook them for 20-25 mins until all juices run clear.
Serve it hot with chat masala sprinkled over kebabs. It tastes yummy!!!!!
If you are using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 mins so that they don't get burned during grilling.
