Easy Chicken Kebabs for the Grill
We had these chicken kebabs the other night when we decided to do some indoor style "grilling" to lift oUr mood about the rainy weather. We ate these kebabs with the feta cheese recipe shared earlier this week.
There are many types of marinades out there. This one is delicious and takes very few ingredients. It makes enough for a lot of meat and vegetables. Since we were eating alone we did not make too much but left the marinade recipe. We cooked the leftover and poured it over the kebabs for extra flavor before eating. It was also very good with bread.
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup honey
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup oil (not olive oil)
You can choose whatever types of vegetables or meat that sound good to you. We used chicken, zucchini, tomato, onion, and bell pepper.
Make the marinade and let your meat and vegetables sit in it for at least three hours. Overnight is also okay. Leave in the refrigerator while marinading. During this time you can also soak your skewers in water so that they are less likely to burn while grilling.
Thread the meat and vegetables onto the skewers. We did a mix on each skewer but many people like to do all meat and all vegetables, especially if there are any vegetarians around.
Place on the grill and cook for about 10 minutes, or as long as it takes for the vegetables to brown and the meat to be cooked through. Since it was a rainy day and we were grilling indoors. He made a creative contraption to allow our kebabs to cook off of the pan. You can also place the kebabs directly on the oven rack. We just didn't feel like having to clean the oven rack after :)
The contraption had a little accident while cooking but everything turned out great anyways :)
Enjoy outdoors on a sunny day or inside when you wish the weather was nice enough for grilling!
