A Syrian recipe from ” Sumac” by Anas Atassi. If you can, start the preparation the day before and leave to marinade overnight. If you like you can barbecue the skewers- they will need about five minutes on each side. They are good served in a flatbread with some fresh herbs and lemon juice.
Pulse all the ingredients a few times in a food processor. Continue blending on a regular setting for 1-2 minutes, until the mix is finely chopped and smooth.
Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours but ideally overnight.
When ready to cook preheat the oven to 230 C, 210 Fan.
To make the kebabs take a big handful of the minced chicken and with moistened hands form it into a sausage shape around a skewer. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
Place the skewers on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes then turn on the grill, remove the foil and grill for 3-5 minutes on each side. Serve immediately.
