Spicy Turkish Ground Chicken Kabobs
Amount Measure Ingredient Preparation Method
1 pound ground chicken or turkey
2 large egg whites
3 tablespoons onion finely chopped
3 tablespoons red bell pepper finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil divided
1/4 cup parsley finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon coriander
3/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
thinly sliced grilled onions & red bell for garnish slices, fresh herbs & lemon wedges
In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, egg whites, onion, bell pepper, 2 tablespoons olive oil & seasonings. Mix gently until well blended.
Divide into even portions that are equal to double the number of servings being made. For example, if you are making this recipe to serve four, divide the seasoned meat into 8 portions. Form each portion into a 2 1/2“ - 3” long sausage. To prevent the meat from sticking too much, wet hands with cold tap water when forming the patties.
Insert a flat-bladed skewer lengthwise through the meat. Gently flatten the meat & shape it into an oval (about 3“ x 1 1/2”) around each skewer. Repeat, placing two kabobs on each skewer.
Arrange skewers on a foil-lined broiling tray. Brush lightly on both sides with remaining olive oil. Broil about 4" from source of heat until done (but not browned), about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes per side. Serve immediately over rice pilaf.
