What is Chicken Shish Kebab?

Chicken Shish Kebab is a traditional Turkish dish that features marinated meat that is skewered and grilled over an open flame. The term "shish" means skewer in Turkish, so the dish gets its name from the method of cooking. Shish kebab can be made with a variety of meats, including beef, lamb, and chicken. While the type of meat used may vary, the key to a great shish kebab is the marinade.

Tips for Making the Best Chicken Shish Kebab

  1. Use fresh chicken: For the best flavour and texture, use fresh chicken that has not been frozen. Soak the skewers: If you're using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before using them. This will prevent them from burning on the grill.
  2. Don't overcrowd the skewers: Be sure to leave some space between the chicken pieces on the skewers to ensure even cooking.
  3.  Use a meat thermometer: To ensure that the chicken is fully cooked, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 75°C.
  4. Let the chicken rest: After grilling, let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving. This will allow the juices to redistribute and result in a juicier, more flavourful chicken.
