1/2 pound ground chicken
1/2 pound ground lean lamb
6 tablespoons fine dried bread crumbs
2 tablespoons minced onion
1 large egg yolk
About 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Sauce (optional; choices follow)


1. In a bowl, mix chicken, lamb, bread crumbs, onion, egg yolk, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper.

2. Divide meat mixture into 4 equal portions. Pat each portion around a metal skewer (flat ones are easiest to handle) to form a log 1 inch thick and 7 to 8 inches long.

3. Lay skewers on a lightly oiled barbecue grill over a solid bed of hot coals or high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds); close lid on gas grill. Rotating skewers to brown meat evenly, cook until kebabs are no longer pink in center (cut to test), 7 to 10 minutes. If desired, about 1 minute before meat is done, brush lightly with the sauce of your choice.
