Aleppo Pepper Marinated Chicken Kebabs



One day in advance:

  1. In a food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade, combine the tomato paste, lemon juice, Aleppo pepper, garlic, white pepper, salt and ice cubes.
  2. Drizzle in the oil a little at a time as you process, until it becomes a thick paste.
  3. Place the chicken in a bowl and coat well with the paste. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

The day you’re serving the dish:

  1. To cook, build a fire in an outdoor grill.
  2. Brush off the marinade from the chicken with a basting brush or paper towel and discard the marinade.
  3. Arrange the chicken cubes on skewers. Grill for 8-10 minutes, turning to cook evenly on all sides. Serve immediately.


If you don’t have access to a grill, you may instead choose to grill the kebabs.
