Recipe: Chicken and pepper kebabs
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 green or red bell pepper, seeds removed, cut into cubes
- 8 shallots, quartered
1 Place the chicken in a shallow dish and toss with the garlic, lemon juice, cumin, and thyme. Add salt and pepper to taste.
2 Cover and refrigerate overnight.
3 The next day, preheat the oven to Broil (or a grill to High).
4 Thread the chicken pieces onto skewers (see Note), alternating chicken, bell pepper, and shallots.
5 Brush the kebabs with the marinade and cook under the broiler or on the barbecue, 5 minutes on each side, then serve at your outdoor party.
[Note] You will need wooden or metal skewers for this recipe. If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes so they won’t burn.
Makes 4 servings.
