Morg Kebab (Iranian Skewered Chicken)

“There are times when you just want to keep it simple: to use fewer ingredients but still to produce a sensational result. This is a simple but delicious recipe for chicken kebabs. For the best results, the recipe recommends cooking the kebabs over glowing coals but concedes that the kebabs can be cooked on a preheated grill. I found this recipe in 'The Best of Lebanese and Middle Eastern Cooking', and I'm posting it here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. The preparation and cooking times below do not include the 2 hours suggested minimum time for marinating.”
