Chicken Kabab in Oven | Chicken Kabob recipe

Chicken Kabab, a delicious chicken dish made from the marinated chicken, thread into the skewer and cook it on the oven/ grill. In today's recipe, i will be sharing the recipe to cook in the oven. As winter is in peak here, i always find reason to turn on my oven, in addition to the sweet treats, i'm making this kind of kabab frequently now. Not only it's delicious, it's easy to put it together. You can marinate the chicken and keep it in refrigerator over night,  the next day, bring it to room temperature, thread into the skewer and it's ready to go into the oven.It can be served as starter or as side dish for rice or even you can stuff inside your flat breads and make it as roll. 
If you have been following me on Instagram, you might knew about the cauliflower kabab that i had shared recently, since i got few dms on how to make it,the same day, i shared the written recipe alone in that post, will post detail step by step instructions soon, in the mean time, you can keep this as reference and make the cauliflower kabab too. Now coming back to today's recipe, make sure to cut the chicken into equal size to ensure even cooking. Next, if you're making kabab in the oven for first time, keep an eye on the chicken after 18-20 mins since every oven is little different and the time may varies in your oven.That's it, now let's check out on how to make this chicken kabab.
