Delicious & Succulent Suya Chicken Kebabs

chicken kebabs

I made these delicious flavour-packed juicy Suya chicken kebabs for my family the other day and we loved them so much. It was just finger licking good, the kind of Friday night food after a long hard week.

This recipe was just so easy to prep & cook but the flavours were just on point. I thought it is a must-share and a must-try especially if you are looking for easy and tasty food.

I hope you will love it as much as we did.
