Garlic Lemon Chicken KabobsLeave a comment

I’m baaaaaaack in the USA! Did anyone miss me? Oh man I guess those are crickets I hear in response to that question ;). Please excuse me while I slowly recover from my vacation coma. We had the most amazing time in Europe, it was so nice to spend some time with just Blair and be away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We saw so many amazing things, ate unbelievable food, and fell a little bit more in love as corny as that sounds. I will most likely be sharing some pictures very soon with you all!

Now that we are back, it seems that summer is slowly slipping away from our fingertips. When it comes time to go back to work and meet my new kids, I will be ready, but it also means that I am going to suck up every last bit of summer. This means being outside as much as possible, eating summer produce, lazy mornings, and long nights of grilling. I have been trying to be better about using leftover ingredients in our fridge from the previous week for the current week’s menu plan. I had these kabobs bookmarked for forever and had some leftover tzatziki that needed attacking. This particular marinade is very light and refreshing plus it is easy to make which is always a bonus. Another plus is that if you are like me, you have all the ingredients already on hand. Make this soon, before those summer grilling nights are gone!

Garlic Lemon Chicken Kabobs

3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Zest of 1 lemon
2-3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 tsp. kosher salt
½ tsp. ground black pepper
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces

What you’ll do:
In a medium to large bowl, whisk together all ingredients except for the chicken. Once thoroughly combined, add the chicken pieces to the bowl. Fold the chicken pieces to coat evenly with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 8 hours.

Prepare a grill to medium heat. Thread the chicken pieces onto skewers and discard the excess marinade. Lightly oil the grill grates. Place the kabobs on the grill, cover, and cook until the chicken is opaque throughout, about 8-12 minutes, turning once or twice during cooking. Transfer to a plate and serve.
