Ingredients:

 

Kababs:

3 chicken breast fillets, cut in 1-inch cubes

2 red bell peppers, cut in chunks

2 green bell peppers, cut in chunks

1 red onion, cut in chunks

 

Kebab marinade:

(Split all marinade ingredients in half. One half for the meat, and the other half for the veggies)

 

2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

juice of 1 lemon

 6 cloves of garlic, chopped

2 teaspoons paprika

2 teaspoon thyme

4 teaspoon oregano

4 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

 

Instructions:

Marinade

 

1. Mix 1/2 of all ingredients for the marinade in small bowl. Place chicken in a Ziplock bag and pour marinade over it. Marinade in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

2. Mix the other HALF of the ingredients in the same bowl pour into a Ziplock bag with the vegetables. Marinade for at least 30 minutes.

3. If you are using wood skewers, while the chicken and veggies are marinating, soak the skewers in water for about 15 minutes. You need to soak wooden skewers in water for about 20- 30 minutes to keep them from catching fire on the grill.

Chicken Kebabs

1. Thread the chicken and peppers and onions on the skewers. I usually place about 5-6 chicken pieces and a combo of peppers and onion in between.

2. Heat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan over medium-high heat. Spray the grates lightly with oil and grill for about 5 minutes on each side, or until the center is no longer pink.

3. You can also bake this Mediterranean chicken skewers in the oven if desired. Preheat the oven to 425 F. Place chicken skewers on roasting racks over two foil-lined baking sheets and bake for about 10-15 minutes, turn over once and bake for another 10 - 15 minutes on the other side, or until they are baked through.

4. Enjoy!
