Lemon Garlic Chicken Kebabs: This easy lemon garlic chicken is easily one of my favourite fall recipes with a flavorful homemade marinade. Combination of Indian spices, fresh lemon juice, freshly grated ginger, garlic & onion with some freshly chopped coriander & panko bread crumbs gives a perfect marinade mix to these Kebabs. Refrigerate for an hour and they are ready in no time. They are full of flavour, easy to make and fun to eat and most loved recipe of my family on weekends.

Ingredients :-

For Chicken Kebabs :-

½ kg/500 g/1.1 lb. Chicken (minced/keema)

1 tsp. Red Chili Flakes

1 tsp. Ginger (grated)

1 tbsp. Garlic Cloves (minced)

1 tsp. Lime Juice (fresh)

1 Onion, large (grated & water squeezed out)

1 Egg

6-7 Fresh Coriander Sprigs (stems removed & finely chopped)

½ tsp. Cumin Powder

½ tsp. Coriander Powder

½ tsp. Garam Masala Powder

½ tsp. Red Chili Powder

Salt to taste

1 tsp Olive/Veg Oil

½ cup/60 g approx. Bread Crumbs (pref. panko/any)

1.5 tbsp. Vegetable Oil

1 chiplet/20g. Butter (salted)

Method :-

For Chicken Kebabs :-

In a large bowl take the minced chicken. Add red chili flakes + grated ginger + minced garlic + lime juice + grated onion + egg + cumin powder + coriander powder + garam masala powder + red chili powder + salt + olive/veg oil + bread crumbs. Mix well and refrigerate, covered for 1 hour

After 1 hour take out the meatball mix from the refrigerator, mix again and with the help of a scoop/spoon take the mixture and place onto your palm, roll into a small lemon sized shaped ball and place the prepared kebabs on a plate one by one (in case of bare hands please apply few drops of veg oil on your palms and then rolls the kebabs)

Similarly prepare all the meatballs from the remaining mixture and set aside

Heat veg oil + butter in a non-stick pan. Gently place the prepared meatballs on the pan in batches. Cover and cook for 5-7 mins on low-medium flame

After 5-7 mins remove the lid and flip over to cook the other side of the meatballs. Cover again with the lid and cook for another 4-5 mins on low medium flame until a light golden crust is formed outside. Keep changing sides for even cooking

Once completely cooked and golden brown in colour, dish out on a plate

Similarly, prepare the remaining Kebabs. When completely cooked, dish out and switch off the gas. Serve hot with the prepared chilled dip

Time to Taste:) Enjoy these meatballs with the drink of your choice:)
