My wife was born in Tehran but grew up in Israel. Until we found this recipe our home was the weak sister of the family BBQs. We don't bother with the kebab part. We just put boneless chicken breast fillets and chicken tenders in the marinade for a half hour or so before laying them out on the grill. Umm-umm-umm. For a quick ticket to cholesterol heaven, marinade chicken parts with the skin on. Great recipe and authentic enough to pass in the in-law test.
