Joojeh Kabab Recipe for grilled Chicken Skewer

Here’s a simple recipe for Joojeh Kabab (Persian Saffron Chicken Kabab) with a saffron marinade:


  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 large onion, grated
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground saffron threads (soaked in 2 tablespoons hot water)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Metal or soaked bamboo skewers


Prepare the Marinade:

In a bowl, combine the grated onion, yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, saffron water, turmeric, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create a smooth marinade.

Marinate the Chicken:

Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the saffron marinade over the chicken, ensuring each piece is well-coated. Massage the marinade into the chicken for even flavor distribution.

Marinate Time:

Cover the bowl or seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. This allows the chicken to absorb the saffron-infused flavors.

Skewering & Grilling:

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Thread the marinated chicken pieces onto metal or soaked bamboo skewers, ensuring they are snug but not overcrowded. Grill the skewers for approximately 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is fully cooked and has a nice char on the outside.


Remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes. Serve the Joojeh Kabab hot, accompanied by rice, flatbread, or your favorite Persian side dishes. Enjoy the aromatic and flavorful experience of Joojeh Kabab with this saffron-infused marinade!
