Final Notes for the Homemade Chicken Kebabs Recipe

➡️ Chicken recipes are very popular today. As a result, there is not surprising that more and more people are looking for delicious food recipes including chicken.

➡️ Grilled chicken is among the most popular foods. No matter if you cook a grilled whole chicken or chicken kebabs, people will like it and your cooking skills will get positive appreciation!

➡️ Skewers, kebabs, or kabobs, as they are known in the US, are of different types. Many skewer recipes are made with chicken breast or chicken things in combination with various vegetables from which the most often used are onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, and mushrooms.

➡️ Homemade chicken kebabs are prepared all over the world. It seems that kebabs were first cooked in the Middle East. However, different types of skewers are to find everywhere in the world under various names – shish kebab, shashlik, doner kebab, chuanr, and so on. Chicken kebabs are known as dak-kkochi in Korea, Jujeh kabab in Iran, shish taouk in the Middle East, and yakitori in Japan.

➡️ Kebabs, including those made of chicken, are also popular in Europe and especially in Mediterranean countries such as Greece and Spain. A special note deserves the Greek chicken kebabs (see the recipe below). They are made with boneless chicken breast with some local spices like thyme and rosemary and fresh lemon juice and the final result is a true spoiling experience for your taste buds!

➡️ My homemade chicken kebabs recipe is delicious because of the very flavored marinade. If you fry the kebabs on a coal grill they will have a slightly smoked taste, which makes the skewers even tastier.

➡️ You can serve the homemade chicken kebobs plain or with some side dishes. I recommend eating these chicken skewers with mashed potatoes, French fries, or simple rice pilaf or risotto.

➡️ Some dipping sauce can be served as well with these skewers. Also, you can prepare some fresh vegetable salad to match the chicken kabobs with tomatoes.

➡️ The best alcoholic drink to match my marinated chicken kebabs recipe is white wine, but a cold beer is also a good choice.

➡️ Enjoy making chicken skewers from scratch! For additional info, read more about the chicken skewer origins here.
