Green chicken Kebab | Kukskitchen

Green chicken Kebab | Kukskitchen

Chicken is so versatile. It is an essential ingredient in any dinner party, for me. Most people like it and are safe when given to kids.I try to dress them up different from time-to-time. This kebab is such a discovery. I can not remember where I got this recipe from. I had it saved since so long. When ever I make it, it becomes an instant hit and the talking stock for the next few days.

A few things before we start:

  • I use boneless chicken thigh.
  • Soak skewers in water for up to 30minutes so the bamboo won't burn.
  • Apply oil to the skewers before using meat.
  • When cooking in outdoor grill: Mix 1/2 cup oil with 1 tbsp water and brush this on the chicken in between. This will help keep the chicken moist.
  • Stovetop method: Place a griddle pan on high heat. Once its really hot, lightly brush the chicken pieces with some oil. Add the chicken pieces spaced apart. Once the water from the chicken evaporates, cover for couple of minutes till the chicken cooks, turning as needed.
  • For mint yogurt dip: Add handful of mint leaves and a clove of garlic to 1 cup of low fat yogurt and salt and grind to smooth consistency. 
  • You can also add vegetables like courgette, capsicum and onion in the leftover marinade and add it to skewers.

  1. Mouthwatering kababs. I bet these probably will be feasted upon at the expense of every other food in any party.

    1. Dear Minnie,

      Thank you for the lovely comment. They are a favourite at any party they are served. So much so that, I had never got a chance to even properly taste them myself, let alone take a picture of them till last week.

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
