I had a pack of skewers I hadn’t gotten around to using yet so I decided to make some spicy chicken kebabs. To start this easy chicken kebab recipe, I chopped some cilantro.
Then I cut some chicken into about one inch cubes.
To make the marinade for the chicken, I combined olive oil, the chopped cilantro, adobo seasoning from Penzey’s (mostly Mexican oregano and cumin), cayenne pepper, and paprika.
Add the chicken and let marinade for at least three hours.
I stacked my kebabs with green bell peppers, red bell peppers, and red onions. It makes them look pretty AND they taste good. Then threw ’em on the grill. Oh, how I love this grill.
These pair nicely with some grilled veggies. I chose asparagus and funky little tomatoes from New Seasons.
I grilled them for about four minutes on each side.
And that’s it! So easy and so tasty. These kebabs are even boyfriend approved.
