Mix together all ingredients except cooking oil and marinade chicken in it.

Skewer pieces close together, levelling the mixture from top to bottom. Wrap a string tatutly along skewered chicken to keep the pieces firm while cooking.

Burn charcoal in the barbecue or grill till white ash appears on the surface and cook, keeping chicken pieces 6 inches above the fire.

Cook on low fire till chicken is tender, then stroke fire to medium heat, baste chicken with a little oil at a time, till all the oil is over and the chicken is well browned.

Alternatively, the chicken can be cooked in a preheated oven at 275 ºF for 15 minutes.
