Nice Indian skewers. The chicken needs to marinate for at least 1 day, so plan accordingly.

1In an electric coffee/spice grinder finely grind cumin seeds and cloves.

4Seal bag, pressing out excess air, and turn bag several times to coat chicken well.
5Marinate chicken at least 1 day and up to 2.

7Prepare grill (or preheat oven to its highest temperature, 500 to 550 degrees F.).

9Remove skewers from water and pat dry.
10Thread 1 piece chicken lengthwise onto each skewer and grill on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals, turning over once, until just cooked through, about 5 minutes.
(Alternatively, in a lightly oiled shallow roasting pan arrange skewers in one layer and roast in middle of oven.).
