Step 1

In a large bowl toss chicken with salt, cardamom, sumac, oregano, paprika, cinnamon, white pepper, ground clove and nutmeg. Grate in the garlic and squeeze in the juice from a large and juicy lemon. Lastly, pour the oil.

Step 2

Toss to combine, cover and marinate on the counter for 20-30 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile preheat your grill to medium-high heat (about 500°).

Step 4

Once the chicken has marinated, thread onto the soaked skewers. Alternating between thigh and breast meat so each skewer has a little of both.

Step 5

Place the skewers on the hot grill grates, immediately turn the heat down to medium and close the cover. Cook for only a few minutes before using tongs and turning the kebabs. Once the chicken is fully cooked (after about 5 to 8 minutes) remove from the grill.

Step 6

Slide chicken off of the skewers and serve as is, in pita with tomato, cucumber and onion as a sandwich or on top of a salad. Either way, be sure to serve it with garlic sauce.
