Grilling skewers is a great way to cook up your meat and vegetables. Easy prep, easy cooking and easy clean up! Do I even need to mention how good they taste?
- Mix all dry seasonings in small bowl. Place cilantro, mint, lemon zest, and garlic in a food processor and mince. Add olive oil and dry seasonings to the herb mixture and blend. Pour over chicken and lemon wedges and toss well. Let marinade for 30 minutes.
- For each skewer, lace a lemon wedge, rind first, followed by six pieces of chicken. (Thigh pieces will need to be folded over as they’re skewered.) Skewer a final lemon wedge, flesh first, at the end of each stick.
- Heat grill to medium-high heat. Grill the skewers 5 minutes per side (turning 4 times). Transfer skewers to plate and drizzle with cilantro sauce. Serve with an arugula salad and sliced fresh white nectarines.

- In a food processor mince garlic. Add cilantro, salt, red pepper flakes, and pepper. Blend until finely minced then add olive oil with pulse action.
