    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Wash chicken breasts with cool water, then cut them into equal sized cubes.
    2. 2
      In a mixing bowl, squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon over chicken cubes and coat them with the flour and a pinch of salt. Cut two lemons and put the pieces in the bowl with the chicken.
    3. 3
      Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      During that 15 minutes, in a mixing bowl, mix tomato paste, yogurt, mustard, garlic cloves, salt, black pepper, cinnamon, 7 spice/allspice, season-all and the juice of 1/2 lemon together.
    5. 5
      Rinse flour and lemon mixture off of the chicken cubes and discard the lemons.
    6. 6
      Coat the chicken with the spice mixture, cover bowl with saran wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
    7. 7
      I like to eat this meal with fattoush salad and baba ghannouj, and use the marinating time to prepare those things.
    8. 8
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    9. 9
      Fry the chicken cubes until they are almost completely cooked. Allow them to cool to the touch.
    10. 10
      When they have cooled, put about 6 cubes on each skewer.
    11. 11
      Mix the remaining sauce with 3T of water in the bottom of a Pyrex baking dish and balance the chicken skewers over the top.
    12. 12
      Bake the chicken for about 15 minutes until the sauce thickens and the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
    13. 13
      Serve with pita bread and/or rice.

      I enjoyed the different spices on this. I grilled mine on the grill, and loved the smokey taste it added. But next time I will bake as directed so that I can make use of the sauce. Made for PAC Spring 20089.

      This was really delicious. I added a little less mustard to the marinade, because I was worried the mustard would overpower the other spices. I did not fry the chicken, I alternated green pepper and sweet onions with the chicken cubes on the skewers, and I grilled it. I have also broiled the skewers, with really good results. Leftovers were good mixed up with some tabbouleh in a wrap the next day.
