Mongolian Chicken Kebab

This recipe is a bit of a mixture. The kebob is Mongolian, the red food dye is Chinese, and the yogurt sauce is Indian. The dye adds no flavor but jazzes up the presentation while the sauce just seems to go well with kebobs.

2 skinless, boneless half chicken breasts.

Canola oil for brushing

Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare the Marinade and Yogurt Sauce (recipes follow). Cut the chicken into 1 to 1 1/2 inch cubes and add them to the marinade. Zip the bag almost closed, expel as much air as possible, and zip fully closed. Kneed the bag to thoroughly coat the chicken with marinade. Marinate refrigerated for 6 to 12 hours. Prepare the grill for direct hot cooking. Skewer the chicken (rubber gloves are recommended) and grill directly over the fire turning every 2 minutes to cook all sides (8 minutes total).
