Chicken Kofta

Kofta kebab is kebab (skewers) made with ground meat and lots of seasonings and fresh herbs. They're super flavorful and juicy. It is the perfect Mediterranean meal that you can eat on its own, in a pita sandwich, hummus or rice bowls.

These chicken skewers are a healthier, lighter version of the classic Kofta kebab.

It is usually made with ground lamb. They sometimes have other ground meat mixed in, such as ground beef, turkey, or ground chicken.

It is super quick and easy to prepare, flavorful, healthy. Just pulse everything in the food processor, form into long thin logs or patties, grill and serve.

The smell alone is truly worth it!

The combination of the garlic and ginger, parsley with the spices is simply irresistible.

Mix and match with salads, dips and veggies or wrap into a sandwich with tahini sauce, lots of fresh mint and juicy tomatoes.
