In a gallon-size zip top bag, combine orange juice, lemon juice, vinegar, ghee, Tandoori Seasoning, and salt. Add chicken pieces and refrigerate for 4 to 12 hours (longer is better). Remove chicken from marinade; reserve remaining marinade to make the sauce. Skewer chicken pieces in an ‘S’ shape, 2 to 3 per skewer, and set aside. Preheat grill or broiler and as it heats, pour reserved marinade into a small saucepan and stir over medium-high heat until marinade thickens to the point where it coats the back of a wooden spoon. While sauce reduces, grill chicken over high heat until it is cooked through. To finish the sauce, reduce heat to low and whisk in yogurt until smooth. Cover and simmer for 7 to 10 min., stirring occasionally. Season with additional salt to taste.
