Fantastic! I totally forgot to review this! We make as directed and serve it with basmati rice topped with chopped parsley or cilantro, grilled tomatoes and naan. We squeeze a bit of fresh lemon on the kabobs prior to eating. We love it!!! Thanks Celtic for sharing this recipe! Awesome!

This is delicious. It has a nice authentic Persian flavor. I used a pound of chicken breasts cut into chunks and then added dashes of garlic and onion powders to the marinade. Instead of putting the minced onion into the marinade, I cut up a red onion and alternated pieces of onion with the chicken on skewers and grilled it that way. Thanks for sharing this!

This is good. I used a whole baby chicken which I kept whole and roasted in the oven along with Middle Eastern coal for added flavour. I marinated approximately 2 1/2 hours. I used extra virgin olive oil, Iranian saffron (but I have a feeling it was fake (Spanish dyed red), sea salt,freshly ground black pepper, plus the rest of the ingredients. I did it in the oven at 350F then changed it to broil after a while, doing the breast side last. I served this on a bed of Orange Persian Rice, along with Turkish Chopped Salad and Fastest Ayran Ever. I'd make a different whole chicken recipe next time.

This chicken came out great, but I did make a few changes. I used boneless, skinless chicken and lemon juice instead of lime. I marinated for 2 hours. This chicken was full of flavor. Next time I will try it with the lime juice!
