Chicken Kebabs


I have been doing quite a lot of outdoor grilling over the past few weeks. I hope you enjoy grilled food like we do, as I will be posting a few of these recipes. This is a lemony chicken kebabs recipe. I have opted to use both chicken breast and thigh meat. As for the vegetables selections, I used onions, peppers, mushrooms, and zucchini. You can also consider using eggplants and cherry tomatoes, they should be just as good with the kebabs.


Chicken Kebabs

Ingredients

2 pieces Chicken Breast, boneless, skinless, cut into 1 inch cubes
4 pieces Chicken Thighs, boneless, skinless, cut into 1 inch cubes

Marinade
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
Juice of 1 Lemon
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Zest of 1 Lemon

2 Small Zucchini, halved and sliced about 1/2 inch thick
1 Red Bell Pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 Green Bell Pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
250 g Small Button Mushrooms
1 Small Red Onion, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
1 Small White Onion, cut into 12 inch chunks
Skewers (soaked wooden skewers for an hour)

Method

Marinade the chicken for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.

Thread the chicken and vegetables onto the skewers. Grill the kebabs on medium heat and make sure to place a piece of aluminum foil underneath of the exposed end of the skewers. Grill the kebabs for about 5 minutes on each side or until the kebabs are fully cooked.

  1. Those chicken kabobs sound good. They have a lot of the same ingredients that I like to put in my kabobs. But sometimes I like to try different seasonings and citrus fruit.If you want to take a look at the collection of tips and recipes I have for grilling you can visit www.cookingandgrillinoutdoors.com

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
