Pineapple Chicken Kebab

Pineapple Chicken Kebab is rather an unusual combination,But it really works well.The pineapple not only tenderizes the chicken but also gives it a slight sweetness.

Chicken boneless  - 300 gm
fresh pine apple chunks  - 200 - 250 gm
chilli powder - 1 tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
cumin powder - 3/4 tsp
ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
fresh thick yogurt - 1 tbsp
pinch red colour
green capsicum - 1
onion - 1
tomato - 1
olive oil - 1 tbsp
salt - to taste.

Serves - 2-3.

Steps to Follow:

Rinse and drain the bite sized chicken cubes.
Cut the capsicum,onion,tomato into chunks.

Take few chunks of pine apple, squeeze the juice and keep aside( 5 tbsp).Remaining pine apple chunks keep aside.

In a bowl add pine apple juice,spice powders,
gg paste,salt,yogurt and food colouring.Mix well.
Add the chicken cubes to the spice yogurt,pine apple juice mixture.Marinate for 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to medium, arrange the chicken pieces,tomato,onion,capsicum chunks,pine apple chunk
alternatively on 3 wooden skewers.

 I came to know from Facebook about Saute,fry n bake Cooking Contest. So I sent 3 recipes to that contest.This dish is one among them. Fortunately I won second place  for all the 3 recipes I sent. Thanks a lot Mrs.Hazeena Sayed ( I sincerely thank the Judge Chef.Mr.Babu Natarajan of Hotel Radha Regend,Chennai.

All the three dishes are very innovative . Using pineapple with chicken for kabab , mushrooms along with chicken in cashewnut gravy and the KOONI eraal kozhukattai all seem very delicious . The step by step pictures were an added bonus to select these dishes .
