North African Baked Chicken Kebabs / Kabobs

Halal Home Cooking: North African Baked Chicken Kebabs / Kabobs
Tasty north african spiced, baked chicken kebabs also known as kabobs.

I found this recipe whilst browsing pinterest, original can be found on closet cooking.

Changes I Made

  • I used Halal Chicken Thighs which were skinless, boneless and diced, The original recipe doesn't state what part of the chicken to be used but I like thigh it doesn't dry out so quick like breast meat does as it has a bit of fat which = flavour.
  • I used smoked paprika instead of regular
  • I used 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin instead of toasted cumin seeds that are then ground
  • I used 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules instead of fresh garlic 
  • I reduced the olive oil by 1 tablespoon
  • I don't have a grill so I pierced my marinated chicken onto skewers and baked at 220C for 15-18 minutes. 
The original recipe says Moroccan style but I'm pretty sure any north african country could claim these as their own, I know I would.

I hope you like the changes made on the blog design jazak Allah khair to Noor for all her patience with me.

I've made a recipe index page it's a work in progress so feel free to have a look around and if there is anything specific your looking for? try the search button on the side bar.

Glad you like the new look, all credit goes to Noor if you ever need a blog design go to blogmepretty.com she does wordpress themes too. All are fairly priced and a quick turnaround / free installation. In shaa Allah you give these chicken kebabs a whirl they are similar to your shish tawook but without the yogurt marinade.
