Homemade Chicken Kebabs

21 October 2008

Homemade Chicken KebabsIn Australia, there’s a wonderful and vibrant community of Lebanese migrants, and I absolutely adore their food.

One of my weaknesses are chicken kebabs. Especially with garlic sauce. Mmmmm.

So today I thought I’d try to make some myself. At the shops you can pay up to $9 for a chicken kebab. I think mine cost about $2.50 each.

Recipe for Homemade Chicken Kebabs

Meat
500g of chicken breast or thighs
3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce
(I actually didn’t have any barbecue sauce, so I just mixed up some soy, hoisin and Worchester sauce.)

1) Marinate chicken for 30 mins in fridge
2) Grill chicken until crispy. Leave to cool, then slice up.

Vegetable Fillings
Lettuce
Tomatoes
Onions
I also had avocado and snow pea sprouts.

Garlic Sauce
2 cloves of garlic
5 tablespoons of natural yoghurt

I had no idea how to make garlic sauce, so I just improvised with garlic and yoghurt. It was delicious! It was definitely the most crucial and indispensable part of the kebab! So don’t leave it out!

Pita Bread
Wholemeal or white pita bread

Lightly oil a pan, fry for a few minutes to turn brown. Roll it up when it’s all nice and warm.
