Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 large chicken breasts, cut into cubed pieces
  • 2 teaspoon lime zest, from one lime
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice, from 2-3 limes
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 ½2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup & 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Mushrooms 1224 depending on how many you want on each skewer*
  • 2 small zucchinis cut into 1-inch slices
  • 2 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley

Instructions

  1. Place the olive oil, soy sauce, honey, garlic, lime zest, lime juice, sriracha and salt and pepper in a large bowl. 
  2. Whisk to combine. If you’re having a hard time getting the honey to combine you can blend it all for 10-15 seconds in a blender.
  3. Set aside 1/3 of the marinade. If you don’t want brush more marinade over the skewers you can skip this step or even cut the marinade recipe by one third.
  4. The remaining 2/3rds of the marinade either keep it in the bowl or my preference is to add it to a large Ziploc bag
  5. Add the chicken and all of the cut vegetables in the bag (or bowl) and mix so that the marinade covers all the food.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for at minimum 1 hour, can be marinaded overnight too.
  7. Make sure the grill is clean. To grease the grill, lightly dip some paper towels in vegetable oil and carefully rub over the grates until glossy and coated.
  8. Preheat to medium-high heat
  9. We use metal skewers but if you’re using wooden ones make sure to soak in cold water for at least 30 minutes.
  10. Thread the chicken and vegetables onto the skewers. I put the skewers into deep dishes so I can pour the remaining marinade over the top and brush some extra onto the completed skewers.
  11. Cook for 5-7 minutes on each side or until chicken is cooked through and golden brown
  12. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Notes

*depending on the size of the mushrooms you may need to cut them in half. I like cremini mushrooms with the skewers.

** There is lots of marinade leftover as I make extra marinade so we can have the 1/3 to cover the assembled skewers. You can cut down the marinade if you don’t want to do that step. The kebabs will have more than enough flavour either way.
