I am not sure about you, but I absolutely love chicken kebab (kabab).  (Previously, I was hooked on chicken kabab koobideh.) Whoever invented the idea of marinated meat threaded onto skewers and then grill over fire was a culinary genius–one of the most brilliant and delicious food ideas ever invented. I can’t imagine a world where I can’t savor grilled skewered of meat that is bursting with flavors; I simply adore grilled meat, especially kebab.

Kebab is traditionally made with lamb, but I opted for chicken kebab because I don’t eat lamb. Chicken kebab is actually quite easy to make and the marinate process takes just an hour or less if you want. Ground cumin is the secret spice used in my chicken kebab recipe and it imparts an exotic aroma plus unique flavors to the meat. The bell peppers give both color and help refresh your palate after each bite of the chicken kebab.

With summer just around the corner, this chicken kebab (kabab) recipe might come in handy when you plan for your BBQ parties this year. Without a doubt, they are exceptionally tasteful.

    Mmm, the kebab looks absolutely delicious!
    If using dried parsley, would it be same amount as the fresh ones? :P

  2. I love chicken kebabs too and i too make them with chciken than lamb, and this looks beautiful and so so yumm.
    If i had chicken pieces here athome i would have made them right now.

  3. i like lamb kebab, the gamey flavour enhances the overall, carnivorous experience. :)
    but chicken kebab’s easily found, in comparison.

  4. Oh I’m loving the marinade! The paprika and cumin must add such a great smokey and earthy flavour to these kebabs. Lovely images :)
    Thanks for sharing this!

    Amazing website1really impressed. I’m Persian and the most important thing in chicken kebob marinate is the saffron, I can’t have chicken kebob without it. and one very important thing overlooked in Persian kebobs is the skewer. You should use thick metal skewer that would make the kebob cook from the inside. that would make the chickens more juicy. your recipe looks great, but I personally would use 4 times more onion and would grate the onion. And I use 2 times more lime-juice but I don’t think non-persians would like it.

    I made these the other day and they turned out great! Thanks for such a great share. Any suggestions of some dipping sauce to go with this please? Thanks a ton :)

    Made these for dinner on a Foreman Grill–even on my little indoor grill, these were awesome. My daughter, who’s usually pretty apathetic about what’s being served for dinner exclaimed “this is so good!” Needless to say this recipe will be making frequent appearances in my culinary routine. Thanks for posting!
