grilled chicken, red onion, and mint kebabs

A late-inning addition to the blog, but a perennial favorite for summer grilling. Ideal accompaniments include Carrots with Garlic and Yogurt and grilled corn salad. 


Grilled Chicken, Red Onion, and Mint Kebabs

Adapted from Bon App├ętit

2 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon dried mint
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 bunch fresh mint

1 red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
8 12-inch metal skewers

Mix chicken, 2 tablespoons oil, garlic, mint, oregano, salt, and pepper in medium bowl. Let marinate 30 minutes. Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons oil and lemon juice in small bowl to blend.

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Pull off large mint leaves from stems. Alternate chicken, onion, and mint leaves on skewers; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until chicken is just cooked through, turning and basting occasionally with oil-lemon mixture, about 9 minutes.
