Kebab week is here for Get Grillin.‘ Cookin’ Canuck and I are bringing delicious grilled kebabs to this weeks virtual BBQ. I grilled up these Chicken Skewers with Roasted Pepper Dip. They are simple, quick and satisfying. What are you bringing to our link up party? Any type of kebab will do. Remember, you don’t need to create a new recipe. We just want you to join in on the fun with anything you’ve got. Our sponsor Rösle this week has an amazing set of grilling utensils for one lucky reader.
Today is July 4th. I hope you are all doing something fun. My past few posts have featured all kinds of Americana. I promise to retire those little flags for a bit. They are just so fun to use in photos. Besides, the USA is great place & it is fun to celebrate it.
I knew I needed to serve some kind of carb or starchs with these kebabs but I didn’t know what. You see I just like steamed veggies or a big green salad with my protein. I guess I border on the Paleo Diet when it comes to that stuff.
For most folks some kind of carb is necessary.
As I gazed into my fridge I froze in excitement when the whole wheat hot dog buns stared back at me. A great vehicle to smear with my roasted pepper sauce. These kebabs slide easily into the folds of the bun. Now your meal can be hand held so you can walk around the yard. From stick to bun all is fun.
Those kebabs sure do look hot on the grill, huh! A rainbow of color.
For the gluten free folks, grab yourself a gluten free bun. Quinoa or rice would be a nice side too. Or, you can go caveman like me. The green salad is perfect. I tosses a few cherries in with the greens.
Isn’t that roasted pepper dip so pretty? It tastes amazing too. Smear it on a bun, dip your skewer in it or use it to dress a salad as I did.
I trimmed these white flowers from my front yard. It is so nice to be able to run outdoors to grab all kinds of pretties for my photo shoots. I told you all about my fresh herbs yesterday. The cherries are fun too. Those are from Trader Joe’s though.
The marinade for this chicken is simple. All you need is some olive oil, lemon juice and some spices. A half hour will do, a few hours to marinate even better.
What are your favorite kinds of kebabs? Do you have a special marinade you like to use?
- 1 pound Organic Chicken Breast, trimmed into 1 inch pieces
- 3 Bell Peppers: 1 yellow, 1 red and 1 orange, cut into 1 inch pieces
- 1/4 cup Lemon Juice
- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil + 1 tablespoon
- pinch of Smoked Paprika, Black Pepper, Garlic Salt
- Optional: Hot Dog Buns
- 1/2 cup jarred or homemade Roasted Red Peppers, pat dry with paper towels
- 1/2 cup low fat Mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
- pinch of Smoked Paprika, Black Pepper, Garlic Salt to taste
- Make marinade. Combine lemon juice, olive oil and spices in a medium bowl. Put chicken pieces in bowl, cover and place in fridge for 1/2 hour up to 3 hours. Spray some oil onto your grill while it is turned off. Pre heat the grill to medium high heat. Toss bell peppers in 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with some garlic salt. Let it sit a few minutes. Thread the chicken and bell peppers onto skewers in alternating patterns. Cook for about 3-4 minutes each side watching carefully. The total cook time will be about 12 minutes or so. When the chicken is white throughout it is done.
- Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender until well combined. Adjust seasonings to taste.
- Try these kebabs and marinade with steak, jumbo shrimp, salmon, halibut....or anything else you desire.
- You can use bamboo or metal skewers. If using bamboo ones be sure to soak them for a half hour in water so they don't burn on the grill.
- I have a great recipe for Homemade Mayonnaise if you wanna try it for the pepper sauce.
