Spiced and grilled, these chicken skewers can be served as an appetizer or main dish over polenta or couscous.



Combine oil, oregano, onions, garlic, honey, salt and chicken; let marinate for 2 hours. Remove chicken from the marinade and dry with a clean towel.

Place cumin, coriander, mustard seeds, fennel seeds, cloves and allspice in a mortar, spice grinder or pepper mill; crack or coarsely grind.

Roll chicken in spice mixture and string onto skewers. For appetizer portions, place 2 pieces per skewer. For a main course, string 6 to 8 pieces per skewer.

Grill skewers over hot coals or a gas grill pre-heated to high, for about 10 minutes, occasionally turning, or until the internal temperature is 165° F. (You also may roast the skewers in a 400° F oven for 10 to 12 minutes.)


Serve with polenta or couscous and Honeyed Orange and Fennel Salad.
