Herb Marinated Chicken Kabobs



I can not believe summer will be over pretty soon. They kids will be back to school and I for one am looking forward to just getting back into our routine. As always with summer come delicious grilled everything! Being that we do not live where its warm all year round I grill as much as I can from start to finish. I just love trying out new things to grill like my Grilled Summer Fruit Salad. We eat a lot of chicken in this house. Besides pasta it is always my go to meal to make for dinner. Mainly because it is just so versatile and pretty easy to conjure up something new with. 




These are the tastiest chicken kabobs. Marinated in a light herb marinade and grilled to perfection. You could serve them for lunch, dinner and even for a cookout or dinner party.


Ingredients
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Zest of 1/2 lemon

4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

3 cloves garlic, chopped

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

1/2 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano leaves

1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

8 metal or bamboo skewers 

Directions
Place chicken in a shallow baking dish or a resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, zest, juice, garlic, parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper. Pour marinade over chicken; turn to coat. Let marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours

If using wooden skewers, about an hour before yo are ready to assemble the kabobs, soak the skewers in water. This will ensure they do not burn.

Place 4 pieces on each skewer. You should end up with 8 kabobs.

Heat your grill to medium high heat about 350 degrees F. Grill 4-5 minutes on each side.

Drizzle with your favorite dressing if desired.
