Barbecue Chicken Recipe

Mediterranean Chicken Kebabs with a Moroccan Accent

Here's a barbecue chicken recipe that'll have you thinking about romantic dinners in exotic places. The aromas of the BBQ chicken cooking over charcoal or even on a normal grill are absolutely wonderful.
Warm spices and lemon combine to make a truely memorable experience. We like to use preserved lemons that we do ourselves, but if you can't get them, grated lemon zest works very well. A great recipe for your own Mediterranean diet.

A Healthy Living RecipeThis great recipe qualifies for our healthy  living seal of approval. Fresh - skinless     chicken meat (use organic if you can)       vegetables and health giving Spices.

Pam's Top Tips
Marinate your chicken pieces well in advance and don't make your heat too fierce - the flavours are quite subtle.

  1. Put the chicken and all the marinade ingredients into a glass bowl - at least one hour before you want to cook.
  2. If you're using an open fire soak the skewers in cold water to prevent them burning.
  3. Now - when you're ready to cook, thread the chicken onto the skewers  - first a chicken piece, then a piece of onion and then a piece of preserved lemon. You should get about 5 pieces of chicken on each skewer.
  4. Grill or Barbecue your kebabs until they're nicely browned and cooked through.
  5. Serve with a crispy baked potato, some tomato salsa and a lovely glass of wine.  Cheers!
