1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 pounds lamb shoulder chops, trimmed, boned, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 12 ounces meat) or 12 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
Wooden skewers, soaked in water at least 10 minutes


  1. Prepare barbecue grill or preheat broiler.
  2. Whisk together the first seven ingredients (olive oil through salt) in a medium bowl. Add the lamb or chicken. Toss to evenly coat. Let marinate up to 2 hours.
  3. Thread onto skewers, leaving a small gap between each piece.
  4. Preheat broiler or prepare grill.
  5. Broil or grill lamb skewers 8 minutes or until the meat is crusty brown but still pink inside, turning after 4 minutes. Cook chicken skewers about 10 minutes or until no longer pink. Serve with Simple Lemon Yogurt Sauce.
