Chicken Chapli Kebabs

Francine Lizotte


Chicken Chapli Kebab is packed with flavor! It is on the spicy side but not that extreme although a pretty fair amount of red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper are added to this recipe. Of course, it always depends on your tolerance to “spicy” and you can always adjust the amounts.

This summer, surprise your friends and family with this dish. You can serve this dish with sliced onions, lemon wedges, tomato slices and naan bread. This is an incredibly tasty and amazing recipe to enjoy…
