Lemon, Garlic, Rosemary & Sage Chicken Kebabs

There’s nothing better than char-grilled chicken kebabs at a Braai (Barbecue), but the ones you buy in store are often covered in a sticky, sugary marinade. So this is a lighter, healthier way to make your own chicken kebabs at home.

What you’ll need:

  • 4-5 Chicken breasts cut into bits that you can ‘skewer’, dont get them too thick or they may not cook in the middle
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • 1 Minced clove of garlic
  • Wooden skewer sticks (Cut these to fit the size or your grill pan or braai before you skewer the chicken onto it)

The ‘How to’:

  1. It’s best to let this marinade overnight in the fridge before cooking. If you’re short on time, 2-4 hours marinading should do the trick.
  2. Make the marinade mix:
    • In a small bowl whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, salt & pepper, rosemary, sage and garlic.
  3. Place the cut pieces of chicken into a zip lock bag or tupperware. Pour the marinade into the bag. Seal & ‘smush’ around to get all the pieces of chicken covered.
  4. Put into the fridge to marinade overnight.
  5. Cut your wooden skewers to fit the size or your grill pan or braai before you skewer the chicken onto it.
  6. After marinading, push the pieces of chicken onto the skewers and grill until cooked.
  7. Enjoy with a side salad!
