Kebabs first originated in Persia and increased in popularity due to the economical value of the ware. The short supply of cooking fuel did not allow families to cook large supplies of food. In addition the economic situation at urban cities made it easy to obtain smaller cuts of meats at butcher shops. The idea for using a skewer was invented by Persian soldiers using their swords to grill meat over open fires.
Today we refer to kebabs as just a shish kebab served on the skewer. But back then kebabs included stewed, grilled, and roasted dishes of large, small, or even ground meats.
No matter how you enjoy your kebab this recipe will definitely evoke a delectable and satisfying feeling with its moist, tender chicken marinated in a sweet and salty savory sauce.
