Cheesy Chicken kebab

This recipe is a special one! During our anniversary last year, we had dinner at a restaurant, when I came across this kebab in the Menu. 

It was so delicious that the very next day (and few days after that) I kept experimenting various methods of recreating the same dish; trying to recollect the various flavors.  Finally, after a few attempts, I think I was able to recreate it and after a few more attempts I was able to enhance it further (I think šŸ˜Š). 

So, every time I prepare this kebab, it brings back all the fond memories of that evening šŸ˜Š.  Sharing with all of you the final recipe:
