Chicken souvlaki. Got a recipe for me?

Hi all

As per the topic -- I absolutely love chicken souvlaki.

Oddly enough, EVERY souvlaki joint here in my home area of Toronto seems to have some kind of "baste" they put on the meat after it is grilled.

What is this baste they put on it?

What is a good marinade? Anyone care to share their favorite?

Also, I know the marinade includes 'olive oil' as an ingredient, but can someone elaborate on WHAT kind of olive oil? There are like 10 varities in my local supermarket ranging from "light" to "extra virgin" to regular and everything in between

Thanks, chow gurus :)
