    Zeldaz's Note:

    Serve with a side dish of couscous with almonds and raisins. The marinade can be used for half chickens, butterflied chicken, and Cornish hens. For these brochettes, plan on 3 boneless thighs per person, though I usually eat only two. From Joyce Goldstein's "The Mediterranean Kitchen", 1989.

    Marinade

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Marinade:Warm the honey gently in a small saucepan over medium heat until it is quite fluid. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat until hey begin to pop. Save about 2 tablespoons of the seeds for garnish and grind the rest in a spice mill or mortar and pestle. Stir the ground seeds, the cinnamon, cumin, oil, and lemon juice into the warm honey.
    2. 2
      Place the chicken in a shallow nonreactive container, pour the marinade over it and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
    3. 3
      To cook, bring the chicken to room temperature. Heat the grill or broiler. Remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Thread the boneless thighs onto skewers, 3 per skewer, and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Grill or broil, basting often with the marinade, until cooked through, about 4 minutes each side. Sprinkle with the reserved sesame seeds before serving.
