Cut chicken into thin ribbons, season with salt and pepper. Mix well all ingredients except chicken, salt and pepper, bell pepper, and onion. Set aside 1/4 of the marinade mixture for dipping sauce.

Alternate threading chicken, pepper, and onion onto skewers, using one to two pieces each of per skewer. Soak in marinade for 2 hours.

Place on a hot grill or on a well greased grill pan and grill for 4-6 minutes, turning over once (when chicken pulls back from the grill, it's time to turn it over). Serve with reserved dipping sauce.

Serves well with basmati or jasmine rice, aloo (Indian style potatoes), and salad.
