Tunisian Fire Chicken Kebabs

  • Yield 4 servings

Piney caraway, gingery cardamom, and citrusy coriander, along with red saffron, golden turmeric and crackling crystals of Moroccan sea salt, season these easy grilled chicken kebabs.



2 tablespoons plus 4 pinches Tunisian Fire Chef Salt
1 -- (6-ounces) plan yogurt
1 1/2 cups water
2 pounds boneless chicken (breast and/or thighs), cut in 2-inch chunks
1 large sweet potato, cut into 12 chunks
4 -- (12-inch) metal skewers
-- Olive oil for coating kebabs


  1. Mix the Tunisian Fire Chef Salt, yogurt, and water in a large zipper-lock bag. Add the chicken, press out air and seal; refrigerate 2 to 4 hours.
  2. Meanwhile boil the sweet potato until tender, about 7 minutes; drain.
  3. Light a grill for medium heat.  Remove the chicken from bad and pat dry. Thread 4 chicken chunks alternating with 3 sweet potato chunks on each of 4 skewers. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with a few pinches of Tunisian Fire.  Grill until chicken is resilient and sweet potatoes are soft and browned, 10 to 12 minutes, turning twice.
