Chicken Tavuk

AuthorGeo FoodsCategory

Ingredients

 1 kg chicken pieces
 1 medium onion
 2 cloves garlic
 ½ cup plain yogurt or milk
 3 tbsp vegetable oil
 2 tbsp tomato paste
 1 tsp ground black pepper
 1 tsp paprika
 1 tsp paprika
 • Oregano, sumac and paprika to garnish

Preparation

1

Heat a grill to medium. Wash the chicken in very cold water for several minutes. Blot the meat dry on paper towels. Cut the meat into bite-sized cubes about the size of large dice. Using a grater make a pulp from the onion and garlic cloves. Pour this pulp and juice into a very fine mesh strainer and using a wooden spoon. Press out the juice into a separate bowl. Discard the onion and garlic pulp. In a glass bowl, combine the onion/garlic juice, yogurt or milk, oil, tomato paste, black pepper, paprika, and salt. Add the cubed chicken and toss to coat. Cover the bowl and refrigerate it for at least four hours or overnight for the best results. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for a few hours so they don't ignite on the grill. Remove the pieces from the marinade and thread them onto small metal or bamboo kebab skewers. Discard any remaining marinade. Sprinkle the kebabs with salt and put them on the grill. Grill them evenly on all sides about 12 minutes. You can sprinkle oregano, sumac, and paprika over the hot kebabs to add extra flavour and serve.
