The chicken skewers can cook to the point.

This takes about 6-8 minutes with the oven preheated.

For the chicken skewers you need the following ingredients…

In the next paragraph you will find information about the preparation variants.

4. Prepare Chicken Skewers two Variations at a Glance

You can make chicken skewers in two ways.

First, put the meat and vegetables raw on the skewers and then fry them,

Alternative cook the ingredients for the skewers first and then put them on the wooden skewer.

4.1 Putting the Chicken Skewers in the Skewer Raw

Place pieces of pepper, zucchini slices and chicken on the skewers.

Place the skewers in cold water for 30 minutes, then the skewers will withstand the heat better.

Fry the skewers in a frying pan at high heat and serve directly.

Cut the rest of the vegetables into small pieces and add them to the tomato rice.

4.2 Put Chicken Skewers cooked in the Pan

This is my preferred variation, because the ingredients are cooked so perfectly on the skewer.

To do this, fry the vegetable pieces over a high heat and remove them from the pan quickly.

Fry the meat briefly on all sides at high heat.

Put the skewers later with the cooked ingredients and heat in the oven at 150°C for 5-8 minutes.

Cut the remaining vegetables into small pieces and add to the tomato rice.

I also like to brush the skewers with a freshly prepared rosemary/garlic oil. It tastes great.

5. Garnish to the Chicken Skewers

Suitable as side dishes:

French fries and fried potatoes, any leaf salad, CousCous, Bulgur, Polenta, for me personally the Basmati tomato rice tastes best with the chicken skewers.
