Lemony Marinated Chicken Skewers

My favorite Mediterranean food blogger, Tori Avey, posted this recipe, and I was game because I could live on that cuisine for the rest of my life and be completely happy!  My mom invited me over for dinner on a spur of the moment, and I provide this lovely recipe which was fabulous and so easy!

Lemony Marinated Chicken Skewers
from Tori Avey

Makes 4 servings

2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tbsp fresh minced cilantro
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  1. Cut the chicken into 1 ½ inch strips for skewering. 
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, cilantro, garlic, paprika, salt, cumin, turmeric and cayenne pepper. 
  3. Place the chicken pieces in a glass dish. 
  4. Pour the marinade over the chicken and stir to coat. Cover with plastic wrap. 
  5. Place in the refrigerator and let the chicken marinate for 20 minutes. 
  6. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water while the chicken is marinating.
  7. Generously grease the grill and heat over medium. 
  8. Skewer the chicken, evenly divided between 6-8 skewers.
  9. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until done.
  10. Serve alone or with tzatziki.
Who doesn't like meat on a stick that grills in about 10 minutes?  Exactly!
