Chicken Kabobs With Lemon And Thyme

I like to grill outside all year long and I have friends who live in Chicago and New York who feel the same way. There's nothing quite like the smell of herb-scented smoke in the middle of a Northern winter! These kebabs are fast and easy to make, and the lemon/thyme flavor combination tastes delicious all year round.

Type: Chicken, Poultry
Courses: Main Course
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

2 tablespoons 30mlOlive oil
2 tablespoons 30mlLemon juice
1 tablespoon 15mlShallot - minced (small)
2 teaspoons 10mlFresh thyme leaves
1   Garlic clove - minced
1 teaspoon 5mlFinely-grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlFreshly-ground black pepper
4 teaspoons 20mlBoneless skinless chicken breast halves (large)
2   Lemons - each cut 4 wedges

Recipe Instructions

In medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, shallot, thyme, garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Place in large re-sealable plastic food storage bag.

Using a fork, pierce each chicken breast several times to help the marinade penetrate. Cut each chicken breast into about 8 large chunks. Place marinade in plastic bag; toss to coat thoroughly. Refrigerate for about 1 hour.

Preheat grill. Thread chicken chunks onto 8 skewers with lemon wedges.

Cook kabobs over medium hot fire for about 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, turning once.

Serve over salad greens.

This recipe yields 4 servings.
