This is one of my favorite recipes for the grill. Serve with fresh fruit and all your favorite summer salads. Leftovers make a wonderful chicken salad.
- 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 lemon, juice of
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 Spanish onion, grated
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- Remove any fat or gristle from the chicken.
- Cut the chicken on the bias into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
- Place the slices in a glass baking dish.
- In a bowl, stir together the lemon juice, oil, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, onion, cumin, coriander, ginger, and salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- Pour the marinade over the chicken, turning it in the sauce until it is well coated.
- Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 8 hours or preferably overnight.
- Soak 8 10-inch bamboo skewers in cold water for 20 minutes.
- Thread the chicken pieces over the skewer, pushing the meat up so that you can fit 2 to 3 pieces on each.
- Carefully place the skewers on a grill grid that has been sprayed with a vegetable spray and cook through.
- Arrange the skewers on a platter and serve chicken at once.
mmm mmm very delicious! we loved them. Just the right amount of herbs and spice. Made it for Sunday dinner with a baked potato and broccoli. I was only able to marinate them for about 8 hours, but they were sooo good, next time I will do them up the night before. Thanks for posting!!
We enjoyed this very much. I cut up the chicken into chunks rather than slices (I was in a hurry and didn't read the directions fully). Rather than serving on skewers, after grilling we un-skewered the chicken and put it all on a serving plate. The flavors blended nicely, and this made a delicious summer dinner. Thanks!
