Tender chicken fillets smothered in a custom marinade then grilled to perfection.


What You Need

  • lb. Chicken Thighs boneless, cut into bite-sized pieces




  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredient under “Marinade” and give it a good whisk. Taste and add more salt if necessary.
  2. Add the cleaned and cubed chicken thighs and mix well. Make sure every bit of the chicken pieces are well covered with the marinade. This is best done in a resealable bag or Ziploc.
  3. Marinate the chicken from anywhere between ½ hour to 4 hours. Also soak the wooden skewers in cold water.
  4. Thread the chicken pieces in to the wooden skewers.
  5. Heat a cast iron grill pan till it is very very hot. Using a silicone brush, lightly grease the grill pan with oil. Place the prepared skewers in a single layer. Sear for 3 to 4 minutes before turning. Baste the skewers with oil before turning. Sear again for 3 to 4 minutes. Keep basting with oil and rotate the chicken on all sides till opaque and fully cooked
  6. Serve with a squeeze of lemon and rice pilaf.


Chicken thighs work best for this kind of kebabs, as it is more favorable. If using chicken breasts, do not marinade more than 2 hours, as the lemon juice will toughen the meat.
