Amazing chicken skewers my mom used to make when I was younger. These are great fresh of the grill and even better reheated. I love to meal prep this and take with me to work.

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk olive oil, 1/4 cup mint, cilantro, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, honey, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 cloves garlic, paprika, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and cayenne in a large bowl. Reserve 1/4 cup marinade in a separate bowl.

  • Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over chicken. Press air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade. Place in a bowl and refrigerate for 5 hours.

  • Whisk yogurt, 1/2 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup mint, 2 cloves garlic, lemon zest, and 1 teaspoon salt together in a bowl to make sauce. Cover and place in the refrigerator.

  • Toss green bell peppers and red onion in the reserved 1/4 cup marinade. Remove chicken from the bag and discard all marinade. Thread chicken, peppers, and onion alternately onto skewers.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Arrange skewers on the grill. Close lid and cook, turning once or twice, until chicken is firm to the touch, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from grill and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with cold sauce.

This turned out excellent! I did not make this sauce but made a similar one from this site. These were so good and they held up well the next day for leftovers too. Definitely give this one a try! Read More

Just okay. The mint made it taste odd; otherwise it was edible but not something I would make again. Read More

Made as it is written and it was delicious!! We have smaller appetites and this recipe would feed four very hungry folk or six plus regular people. Chicken was full of flavour. We served the skewers with brown rice and a romain/strawberry salad. Yummy! Read More

It was great. But it took longer to cook on the grill than the recipe recommended. I will give it more time to cook next time. Read More
