  • Lean ground chicken breasts, 2 lbs.
  • Mint leaves, chopped, ½ cup

  • Green chili paste, 1 tablespoon
  • Ginger paste, 1 tablespoon
  • Cumin powder, 2 teaspoons

Directions

In a bowl, combine ground chicken, onions, mint leaves, 1½ cups cilantro leaves, ginger and chili paste, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper together. Cover the bowl and place it inside a refrigerator for about 2 hours. Bring the bowl out so we can make the seekh. Take 1 cup of chicken mixture and press them on the skewer in the shape of sausage. When all the seekhs are ready, place them in a platter and refrigerate for another 30 minutes. Take a skillet and drizzle vegetable oil on top. Place the seekhs in the hot skillet and cook from all sides. When the meat turns golden brown on top, garnish with cilantro and drizzle lemon juice (optional) right before you serve.

Chicken Marsala

Ingredients
  • Marsala wine, ¾ cup
  • Butter, softened, 3 tablespoons
  • All-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons
  • Capers in brine, chopped, 2 tablespoons
  • Parsley, chopped, 2 tablespoons
  • Olive oil, 1 tablespoon
  • Sage leaves, 16
  • Prosciutto, 8 slices
  • Chicken cutlets, 8
  • Salt and black pepper, for taste
Directions

Preheat the oven at 350°F. First we will wrap the chicken cutlets with prosciutto. Place 2 sage leaves in each prosciutto slice and wrap it around the chicken cutlets. In a plate, season the flour with salt and black pepper. Coat the cutlets in this flour properly and place on the side. Now heat a skillet and add 1 tablespoon butter in it. When the butter begins to foam, not burn, place 4 cutlets at a time and cook over medium-high heat. Once the cutlets turn golden brown, turn them around and cook on the other side. Place the cooked cutlets in a baking dish, and add 1 more tablespoon butter to it. Place this dish inside the oven, and bake for about 6 to 8 minutes. Meanwhile, add Marsala wine in the skillet. Constantly stir the wine, and add capers to it. Add the remaining butter and simmer till you get the sauce ready. Remove the baking dish out of the oven, and spoon this sauce over the cutlets. Garnish with chopped parsley, and serve.

Blend till the mixture is smooth and pour this over the chicken breasts. Cover the pan with Saran wrap and marinade the chicken for about half an hour. Meanwhile, take a skillet and heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in it. Sauté onions and bell peppers in it till tender and almost begin to turn brown.

Now take another glass baking dish and add potato cubes with 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, black pepper. Place the dish in the oven and let the potatoes turn crisp. Stir the potatoes in between so they don't stick to the dish. Next take a cast iron grill pan and toast the tortillas; 30 seconds each side. Wrap them up in aluminum foil and keep it aside. Bring the chicken out and in the same grill pan, cook the chicken for another 4 to 5 minutes. When the chicken is grilled, cut into long strips, serve in a platter.
