MOROCCAN CHICKEN KOFTA

Ingredients

4 flat bamboo skewers

1 lb ground chicken
1 tsp Kosher salt
3 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup minced fresh flat leaf parsley
1 tbsp minced fresh mint
1 tbsp ground coriander

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice

Soak bamboo skewers for 30 minutes in water.

Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Take 1/4 of the ground chicken mixture and shape it around a skewer to form a log about 6 -7 inches long and 1 – 1 1/2 inches thick.  Repeat with remaining skewers and mixture.

Preheat grill to medium hot.  Grill skewers until a thermometer inserted into the meat reads 175F (about 12 minutes).

Remove from grill and serve with pitas, diced tomato, diced onion and chopped cilantro.
