Marinated Chicken Kabobs

Morgan Shepard

Marinated chicken kabobs for a Sunday summer lunch or dinner? We modified a spruce recipe using Villa Gabriella Organic extra virgin olive oil, 8 year aged organic balsamic vinegar & fresh herbs for an easy, flavorful main dish. Using fresh, seasonal orange & yellow bell peppers with red onion for a healthy alternative. You can also use fresh mushrooms, zucchini or squash. The recipe called for marinating up to 12 hours, instead we marinated the chicken for 3 hours, long enough to absorb flavors without becoming too soft. Lemon & vinegar acids break down meat causing it to become mushy if marinated too long. Serve with a seasonal side salad, couscous, orzo or quinoa. Serves 2 to 4. 

Easy Ingredients:

  • 1 pound fresh, boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 1-1/2" chunks
  • 1/4 cup Villa Gabriella Organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons Villa Gabriella Organic 8 year aged balsamic vinegar di Modena
  • 2 large bell peppers-1 each green, red, orange or yellow 
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove fresh garlic, crushed & chopped
  • 1 small shallot clove sliced thin
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Fresh herbs-your choice of basil, marjoram, sage, rosemary, oregano or thyme  

Simple Directions:

1. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, lemon juice, garlic, shallot, sea salt & pepper-mix well 

2. Add chicken chunks to bowl, turn to coat, cover & refrigerate for 3 hours

3. Cut peppers into 1-1/2" chunks, cut onions into 2" chunks set aside

4. Soak bamboo skewers in cold water

5. Preheat grill to 160°F

6. Drain the chicken, reserving marinade 

7. Thread chicken & vegetable chunks onto skewers, do not over load skewers, leave 2 inches bare on end to turn skewers

8. Lightly brush marinade on skewers, discard remaining marinade

9. Place skewers on hot grill, cook 10-12 minutes, turn occasionally until vegetables are tender,  & chicken is thoroughly cooked-test the temperature with a food thermometer

10. Remove from grill, let rest for 5 minutes. Serve & enjoy with Villa Graziella Artisan Crafted IGT Rosato Toscano wine made with organic grapes
