How to prepare delicious and delicious grilled chicken
- Step 1: First we start cleaning the chicken and divide it into small pieces.
Step 2: Wash the chicken pieces.
Step 3: Cut the onion into slices.
Step 4: Add the onion pieces to the chicken pieces and mix well.
Step 5: Now add sour lemon juice and yogurt to the chicken pieces and mix so that the chicken is completely browned and marinated.
Step 6: Slowly add the brewed saffron to the mixture to achieve the desired color.
Step 7: Add salt and pepper.
Step 8: Finally, after mixing the ingredients well, put the lid on the container and put it in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.
Step 9: Next, after the meat is ready, we skewer the chicken pieces for better cooking at a distance. When skewering chickens, make sure to skewer the breast and fillet pieces together and the chicken, wing, and thigh pieces separately. Because the meat of different parts of the chicken’s body is different and some parts are grilled and cooked faster. It is best to use two parallel skewers to roast the thighs so that the head of the thighs passes from one skewer and the lower thighs pass through the other skewer.
Step 10: Drain the butter and when the kebabs are cooking on the grill, brush a small amount of butter on them, which will make the kebabs more delicious.
Step 11: Cut the tomatoes in half and skewer. To make it more beautiful and if you want, you can also use pepper between the tomatoes.
