1 medium Onion, sliced thick
1 tbsp Cognac or arak
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground turmeric

1. Mix everything together & marinate at room temperature for a minimum of 1 hour or preferably in refrigerator overnight.

2. Put 4 or 5 cubes of chicken, without onion, on each metal skewers and broil over charcoal for 10 or 15 mins or in a gas or electric broiler. Serve hot w/Afghan bread salad, & pickles. Serve 4 or 5.

NOTE: My Afghan mentor related that turmeric was much used in Afghanistan in many ways & had a great reputation for its health-giving properties. It is reputed to cleanse blood, & a little turmeric in ones morning milk would a day of good health.
