Chicken Shashlik with Sauce (Skewered Chicken)

Shashlik (shashlyk) is basically a mongolian dish. Shashlik was originally marinated cubes of grilled lamb or beef, but people of different areas changed it depending on local and religious preferences. It is also a form of Shish Kabab popular in India and other Asian countries.

It has high protein contents like meat and vegetables which make it more healthier. And if grilled, it has very little fat in the form of oil.

Today I am going to alter bit of the original recipe, and use chicken instead of beef. This recipe is just soo yumm n perfect that u will never regret making it. Extremely juicy and mouth drooling. This was one of those recipes on which my hubby went nuts :P Lol, so my dear friends, put on ur aprons and enter ur kitchen to impress ur hubbies :P

In this recipe, simply the boneless chicken n veggies have been marinated and then shallow fried :) It is served with a sauce that is extremely delicious.

Note: Never marinate in an aluminium pot, meat absorbs the aluminium oxide from the pot that can b toxic.
