Herbed Chicken Kebabs



I had some last minute plan to have some guests over for supper and with some quick thinking I ended up pan grilling these wonderful kebabs just within 30 minutes. They are so simple and tasty that everyone was asking for more!! I was contented and happy with this simple creation of mine. Hope you will enjoy it too!


Makes 12 to 15 skewers
Recipe can be halved or doubled

Ingredients:
800 grams skinless chicken breasts - Cubed into similar size
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 tablespoon ground garlic or garlic powder
1 tablespoon salt (or to your taste)
1/2 tablespoon black pepper (or to your taste)
1 medium red capsicum 
1 medium yellow capsicum 
1 medium green capsicum 
1 large onion 
1 lemon - juiced
3 tablespoon olive
12 - 15 Bamboo skewers


Method:
1) In a large bowl, marinate chicken with salt, pepper, oregano and garlic. Set aside. 
2) Clean and cut capsicums and onions to similar size as the chicken cubes.
3) Assembly all ingredients in sequence of your liking. I start with capsicum and alternate with chicken then end with onion.
4) Brush the ready skewers with olive oil.
5) Heat a grill-pan on medium high heat and grill the kebabs until all sides are cooked or browned. I love it a little charred as you can see in the photos for the rustic flavor .   
6) Drizzle lemon juice at the last before removing from the pan.

Served hot. Great with rice, pitas or any other kind of bread. I had it with soft tortilla wraps. 


Try to prepare all ingredients with similar size so that they are cooked evenly with maximum surface contact on the grill pan when cooking.

  30. We just finished a Fourth of July party where we had chicken kabobs and to my chagrin I forgot the bell peppers. Thanks for reminding me. This looks tlike a great recipe. My endeavour was a Carribean twist. The chicken was marinated in rum and mint leaves, then after the skewering these sprinkled everything in coconut. I like the herb version as well.
