Garlic Lemon Chicken Kabobs
Zest of 1 lemon
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 lb. boneless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon zest, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Add the chicken pieces and toss to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (up to 8 hours).
Prepare grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
Thread the chicken onto the skewers and discard excess marinade. Place the kabobs on the grill or grill pan; cover. (I used a grill pan and covered the pan with foil.)
Cook until the chicken is opaque throughout, about 8-12 minutes; turning once or twice during cooking.
Serve with tzatziki sauce and warm pita.
