Shish Tawooq - chicken kebabs
2 lb chicken breast
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 Teaspon pepper
1 teaspoon paprika powder
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1,5 tablespoons tomato paste
2 bell pepper ( any colour)
some bamboo skewers
Cut the chicken breast into pieces ( size as in the picture above).
Mix the spices with the olive oil, the tomato paste and the crashed garlic. Add the chicken breast pieces mix it well. Cover and leave in the fridge for 2 - 4 hours (can stay up to 24 hours if needed)
Heat a frying pan and fry the chicken for some min. It shouldnt turn brown so take it from the fire when the chicken is just cooked.
Put the chicken on a seperate plate and than fry the bell pepper ( cut in pieces) for 2 - 3 min. It shouldnt turn brown too.
Now take a skewer and place a piece of bell pepper on it and than a piece of chicken, and so on.
When ready put on the grill for short time. The grill isnt necesarry but gives the special flavour to it. Since we dont do barbecue here i used the grill in my oven ( means the fire is above the shish tawooq)
U can add soem yogurt, lemon juice and even parsley to ur marinade ( i just didnt had these ingredients at home)
