lemon dill chicken skewers

31 Jul

This recipe is incredibly simple, extremely quick and superbly delicious.  I still can’t believe how flavorful it was for only one minute of marinating!  My husband took one bite and said I had elevated grilling to “fine dining” and I have to agree!  I’ll be making this one again soon.

Lemon Dill Chicken Skewers

  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh dill, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper

Heat grill on medium-high heat.  Cut the chicken breast into 1 – 1 1/2 inch cubes.  Transfer the cubed chicken into a bowl.  Add the olive oil and lemon juice to the chicken and begin massaging the meat with your hand for 30 seconds.  Add the dill, salt and pepper and continue to massage for another 30 seconds.  Skewer chicken onto wooden sticks (soaked in water for 30 minutes).  Place on grill and cook for 7-10 minutes, turning once.

Makes 6 servings.

      I’m so glad you tried it! How do you think it would turn out if we switched the dill for fresh oregano and made a “Greek” kebob?

    These are really good – the dill is great but I think the lemon comes out strongly too.
