Lemony Chicken Skewers Infused with Herbs

It's Monday, we always eat healthy on Monday, so I have an awesome option for you.  

You don't need a grill to make these, just make short skewers of chicken and fry them in a bit of oil in a skillet.  

Too much trouble, just put cubed chicken in the skillet, don't want to cube chicken, oh for Pete's sake, just fry the whole breast!  

You work or you aren't home?  No worries, just prep night before, then put the chicken in the marinade in the fridge.  Don't let details stop you, it's easy to prepare a healthy meal that's full of flavor, just use your imagination for this yummy, healthy concoction. 


For the marinade:

¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice
zest of 1 lemon
2-3 garlic cloves crushed
2 tsp fresh thyme or 1 tsp. dried thyme
2 tsp fresh rosemary or 1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

For the skewers:

4 large chicken breasts skinless, boneless, cubed
wooden skewers soaked in water


Combine all the ingredients for the marinade.

Slice the chicken into bite-sized chunks and place in a bowl. Pour over the marinade, cover and allow to marinade for at least 30 minutes but up to 24 hours, covered in the fridge.

Thread the marinated chicken onto soaked wooden skewers or metal skewers.

Heat an outdoor grill or stovetop grill pan then cook the skewers, turning every 3-5 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and golden brown on all sides.

Or, fry in a skillet, or broil in the oven, so many ways to do this

Remove from the heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve with steamed vegetables sprinkled with salt and lemon pepper and rice.  Minute Rice works well with this, and it's fast and easy.  You can always add lemon and butter to the rice, toss in some of the leftover herbs, or save a few tablespoons of the marinade back before you add the chicken to use with the rice and put in a container in the fridge... whatever sounds good...
