Hello my zebras!
It’s finally here: the wonderful warm weather we have been waiting for! Now everyone wants to go outside and stretch their sore limbs a bit. After the long winter it’s great to just enjoy the sun rays on our skin for a while.
And of course, I have a suitable dish for this weather: Lemon chicken skewers with peppers and red onions, which can be sizzled in the pan or, to take advantage now that Spring has sprung, can be cooked on the barbeque grill – sounds like a plan , doesn’t it?
Lemon Chicken Kebabs
For 4 servings
- 60 ml olive oil
- 60 ml lemon juice
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp Oregano
- 1 tsp rosemary
- 1 tsp pepper
- Some cayenne pepper
- Some grated lemon peel
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 500 g chicken breast fillet
- 2 yellow peppers
- 1 large red onion
- Bamboo skewers
Soak the skewers in water for at least an hour.
For the marinade, mix oil, lemon juice, the spices and lemon peel in a bowl. Press the garlic cloves and also add to the marinade.
Cut the chicken breast into bite-size pieces, add to the marinade and leave to infuse for one to two hours in the fridge.
In the meantime, cut the vegetables into bite-size pieces as well. Now put everything alternately on the wooden skewers. In a hot griddle, fry for about 10-15 minutes, turning every now and again. Serve with rice or pita bread.
Are you happy that it is now warmer again? Or are you a real winter person? Or is it still cold where you are?
Easter preparations are in full effect here and very soon there will be many new recipes on the blog about it!
Until then, stay sweet & HAPPY COOKING!
