Chicken Kebab: Image

The alternative to red meat kebabs and to be honest I prefer chicken kebabs as it is softer and tastier.  Perhaps, I am a little prejudiced as I prefer white meat.  I cut the chicken breast in cubes and make my own mince however you can ask your butcher to make the mince for you. Chicken mince is so soft that the kebabs just melt in your mouth.  It is best if all the ingredients are combined and left to marinade overnight, however it can be prepared during the day and left for couple of hours in the fridge. These chicken kebabs have been cooked on the BBQ however, there is no reason why they cannot be baked in the oven or grilled.  Please note some of the ingredients I have put down are optional, if these are added we get that extra flavour however if you have not got the ingredients don’t worry just improvise. I can only say one thing that this is one of the easiest recipes and please have a go and make some delicious tasty kebabs.
