This chicken shashlik recipe is healthy, vibrant, easy and delicious. The chicken is super juicy and marinated in all the spices in a creamy sauce. Not only does it look great but it’s rich in flavour, too. Chicken pieces are placed on skewers and either fried or grilled on the BBQ. A shashlik is like a shish kebab and is popular in the Middle East as well as Central and South Asia - but it also became a hit in the Soviet Union, and is a Latvian favourite that’s best served for Ligo (Latvian Midsummer).
