Murgh Kebab (Chicken Kebab)

afghan, barbecue, chicken, jewish

2 whole breasts of chicken, cut into; 1-in cubes
1 medium onion, sliced thick
1 tablespoon cognac or arak
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon salt

Kebabs of all types, sizes, & shapes are standard in Afghan cooking for both Jews & Muslims. They are easily assembled & probably most basic recipes of all cooking, stretching back to earliest, primitive times. I saw two workman barbecuing their lamb kebabs over a few twigs in an open field, resting skewers on a thick branch cut from a nearby tree, & turning them every now & then. They then wrapped a piece of Afghan bread around skewer & pulled off crisp brown meat. 1. Mix everything together & marinate at room temperature for a minimum of 1 hour or preferably in refrigerator overnight. 2. Put 4 or 5 cubes of chicken, without onion, on each metal skewers and broil over charcoal for 10 or 15 mins or in a gas or electric broiler. Serve hot w/Afghan bread (Noni Afghan -- see AFGHAN.019), salad, & pickles. Serve 4 or 5.
