OVEN BAKED CHICKEN KEBABS
If using, soak wooden skewers in water for about 30 minutes.
Mix all of the kebab ingredients together and set it aside while you heat the oven and gather the cooking pans.
Feel free to marinate for up to 2 days. I sometimes don't do this and it turns out just fine as well.
Separate the mixture to make even quantity for each shape you will be making. You can make patties, meatballs, or original long shaped kebabs. Use the skewers if you choose to.
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Put oil on your hands and form kebab shapes making sure each kebab is coated with a good amount of oil.
Place each kebab on an oven roasting pan and cook for about 30 minutes.
No flipping required, but the timing can vary depending on size of kebabs. It is best to cook until the center reaches 165 degrees.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and serve hot.
SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve as an appetizer with cilantro chutney or for dinner with hot roti, tortilla, naan, or rice. A onion salad and lemon wedge compliment this dish well.
