​​​​​​Some staples do not change but evolve and Jujeh Kebab is surely one of them. Everybody knows what grilled chicken tastes like but have you ever heard the Jujeh Kebab? This citrusy and flavorful Persian dish will be the new favorite of your Yeni Rakı table, you'll see.

Different from other shish recipes, in Jujeh we do not use any tomato paste, instead, we use saffron. The key factor for this meal is the marination process and longer marination means more tender chicken. In addition to the below ingredients, you also need some skewers for the grilling process. Do not skip the grilling process and cook the chickens on a pan since the ethnicity and the taste comes from it.

Yeni Rakı opens a door and invites you to discover new tastes and combine them with all-time favorites. Enjoy!​
