Labor Day Chicken Skewers
Makes 4 skewers
1 (12oz) skinless and boneless chicken breast
½ yellow bell pepper, cut into big cubes
½ red bell pepper, cut into big cubes
1 ½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 ½ tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp chili flakes
½ tsp ground cumin seeds
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
¼ onion, sliced
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil (for grilling)
Place all the marinade ingredients into a bowl and combine.
Cut the chicken breast into 16 cubes (4 for each skewer) and toss in the marinade. Marinade for at least 1 hour.
Using metal skewers or bamboo skewers, threat the chicken pieces alternatively with the pepper cubes to make four skewers. (If you use bamboo skewers, make sure to soak them in cold water for at least 3 hours so they don’t burn when put on the grill).
Place the skewers on the BBQ, brush with some olive oil and grill until done.
