We usually cook Lamb (Lahm Mashwi), but didn't pick any up today, so instead we cooked chicken breasts the same way.

- Marinated chicken in EVOO, Sea Salt, Black Pepper, and Allspice. In fridge for 1 hour.
- Cut up Sweet Onion into large slices
- Skewered chicken alone. Grilled Direct for 15 minutes at 400 on raised grid. Flipped once
- Removed chicken from skewers and alternated Onion/Chicken.
- Back on Raised Grid for another 10-15 minutes. If put the onions on 1st, they're going to burn, so you have to partially cook the chicken first. Not the same with lamb. I put the lamb on with the onions, cook for 3-5 minutes at TRex temps to get to med. rare.
