Traditionally, this chicken kebab recipe is used to cook for king’s favorite dinner night or when guests from outside the middle east come to visit him and he likes to surprise the guests with a wonderful taste of the kebabs.

Those were the time when chicken used to marinate and grilled over coal in a small pot. But yeah! Skewers were available to the chef that time too! Although, they use wooden skewers and the flame goes slowly to high and high to slow.

The coal when burns have slow flame and adding a lot of coal to the pot turn the flame to very high and when the coal stopped burning, again turn the coal to low flame.

You might have an idea of how it is used to cook at that time and also I can’t explain how tasty it really made the chicken in coal pot with the magic of flame.
