Chicken Seekh Kebab is healthier appetizer as marinated minced chicken is slowly baked in oven and tastes delicious too.This would be loved by kids too as it would be easier for them to consume as chicken is minced.My husband loves this Chicken Seekh Kebab as he loves to eat food which are baked.Baking or steaming any food is healthier than deep frying so you can add this dish while dieting too as it is baked.You can make patties shape and use it in burgers or sandwiches instead of deep fried chicken.
