These chicken chapli kebabs are definitely a family favourite and are almost always make an appearance whenever we invite other families around.

Although my husband always looks for an excuse for me to make these because these chicken kebabs are his absolute favourite!

I LOVE my spices, but my husband and kids – not so much. I try to balance out the spices and this recipe is perfect for everyone. Not too spicy, but still packed full of flavour and deliciousness!

I personally love to have it with my homemade yoghurt chutney, the recipe of which you can check out here, but you can have it with whatever sauce you choose!

How you choose to cook these chicken chapli kebabs is entirely up to you. I usually do deep fry these kebabs, but they cook just as well if you choose to shallow fry them, grill them on a griddle pan, or even bake them in the oven. It is entirely up to you.

However, if you choose to make them I can GUARANTEE you that you will love these chicken kebabs every single time.
