Chicken Shish Kabobs

Kabob, Kebob, Kabab, Kebab
- whatever you call it - it's good eating.

Turkish Kebab is normally mentioned using lamb as in shish kebabs. Kabab is associated with middle eastern (Iranian) grilled meats while kebab in many countries is actually fried meats. Then as you travel around different countries you come across the likes of: Kebabi, Kebap, Kewap and getting further away from the spelling you come across Gyros, Souvalkia, Satay, Sosatie and this one, Chislic. Confused? No need to be - it's all grilled meat. But closer to home, in Alabama and especially in Mobile - we say 'Shish Kabobs'.
