Any recipes for chicken kebabs?

I'm trying to find a simple marinade recipe for chicken kebabs, and it's so hard to find one on the net. Does anybody have one?

lol It can be more complicated than that, but no ingredients I've never heard of... Like there's one I found with "sumac" in it... I know of a sumac tree, but that's about it. Basically, a recipe where I don't need to run to 10 different stores to find the ingredients...

I have a great one at home so I searched the net and this looks like the one:

3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ginger powder

Just marinade the chicken for about 30mins (or however long you can) and put them on the skewer thingy's and on the BBQ!

hehe...

do you like satay? (chicken on a stick street food)

marinade:

8 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp sugar
6 tbsp chopped coriander
4 tbsp chopped chives
1 tsp finely chopped chilli

but it does have some non-runofthemill ingredients...

How about this one? I haven't tried thisjust did a search, i was interested )

1/2 cup plain low fat yogurt
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Last night I made tandoori chicken kebabs- on naan bread. Bought a tandoori spice envelope at the store (looked like red curry sauce), added yogurt, let marinade, then grill. yum.

What does the yogurt do? I mean what kind of flavory action does it do? I've never used yogurt with meat before..

Do the soya ones come out with a stir-fry-like taste, or is it different on the grill? They look good though.

Does anybody know how to make the Greek-style ones?

hi!
yogurt is for moisture, i think? i'm not sure. it cools down the spice. doesn't really give it a taste, but it sure turns out moist.

for greek, i would just do... wine, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano. Do you want to make souvlaki?
