Garlic Lemon Chicken Kabobs

These kabobs were zesty and refreshing.  It seems a little loco to describe meat that way, but I thought the lemon marinade with this chicken made it just that.  It was really yummy.  The marinade was so simple to make too.  Definitely a great and easy dinner.  Serve it up with a side of marinated, grilled veggies and you have a perfect summer dish. 

Garlic Lemon Chicken Kabobs

3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Zest of 1 lemon
3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 tsp. kosher salt
½ tsp. ground black pepper
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into ¾-inch pieces

In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon zest, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Add the chicken pieces to the bowl and mix to coat with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 8 hours.

Prepare a medium fire in a grill. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 20 minutes before use.

Thread the chicken pieces onto skewers and discard the excess marinade. Lightly oil the grill grates. Place the kabobs on the grill, cover, and cook until the chicken is opaque throughout, about 8-12 minutes, turning once or twice during cooking. Transfer to a warmed platter and serve immediately.  Makes about 4 skewers.
