A kebab refers to an assortment of meat recipes that originated in the Middle East. Lamb was the original meat of choice for kebabs, but due to the diverse taste preference of the world, almost all kinds of meat can be used to make one – even vegetables. This Chicken Kebab Recipe that we have here has a little twist of Asian fusion in the sauce.
This Chicken Kebab Recipe is the type of shish kebab that I like most. It makes use of tasty marinated chicken breasts and fresh vegetables. From what I understand, shish kebab is the term used to describe a skewered kebab. This can either be meat, poultry, or even fish.
The taste of this chicken Kebab Recipe is awesome. In fact, it caught my attention right after the first bite. Chicken is one of the universal ingredients that taste good even if cooked the simplest way. However, it can be way even better if marinated in spices and seasonings. I must say that the marinade used to make this dish did a perfcet job; it made the kebab stand out – not to mention the fresh grilled vegetables, of course.

Note: I made an oriental twist with my dipping sauce. I did it by combining 2 1/2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce, half a tablespoon of soy sauce, a tablespoon of brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon of water in a glass bowl. I mixed everything together and placed it in the microwave oven to cook for 30 seconds to a minute. It was really good.
