Today my space achieved 100 blogger friends. Let us celebrate this memorable moment with luscious Chicken Shashlik - A Simple but Yummy Kabab recipe. Just try and enjoy it.

1lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Thigh, cut into 1" cubes
1 large Onion (diced)
1 Green Bell Pepper (seedless & diced)
2 medium Tomatoes (seedless and diced)
1/2 tsp Ginger paste
1/2 tsp Garlic paste
1 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
1/3 tsp Black Pepper powder
1/3 tsp Garlic Pepper powder
1&1/2 tbsps Olive Oil
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Chaat masala
2 tbsps Hot and Sweet Tomato Sauce
1 tsp Butter
7 Wooden skewers

Soak wooden skewers in water for atleast 2 hours, so that it will not burn at the time of baking/grilling.

Wash chicken nicely and make it pat dry. Marinate chicken pieces with ginger paste, garlic paste, black pepper powder, garlic pepper powder, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Cover and refrigerate atleast for 2 hours or overnight will be preferable.

Add tomato, bell pepper and onion with the marination. Mix nicely. Combine tomato sauce and butter in a small bowl.

Thread the chicken into the skewers, alternating the chicken with cubes of vegetables as you wish (alternating, onion-chicken-bell pepper-tomato-onion chicken-bell pepper-tomato like that). Arrange the skewers on the baking tray. 

Brush with tomato sauce and butter on it.

Preheat the oven to 450 F. Bake for 20 minutes. To achieve the sizzling effect, now put the oven to broil mode for 5 minutes. Switch off the oven. Take out the baking tray from the oven after 5 minutes.

Place the chicken skewers onto the plate, squeeze little lime juice and sprinkle chaat masala on the top. Serve immediately.

TIPS: If you don't have any oven, you may pour little oil in the griddle and shallow fry
          it with the skewers.
