Chicken Kebabs

I was in the mood for some Chicken Kebabs, and somehow I was thinking Mediterranean style. It must have been the Couscous I had that inspired me to cook ala Mediterranean. At least I tried, by combining a few different spices into the marinate.

The verdict was some pretty darn good (so called?) Mediterranean inspired Chicken Kebabs. Both hubby and I really liked the dinner I made that night! And I even ate up the bell peppers. =). I bet this chicken kebab will taste awesome on the grill! I will try this on the grill when the weather is nice and warm (and rain free!). I’m getting tired off all the rain we’ve been getting in New England.




  • 2 Pcs of Chicken Breast
  • 2 Tbsp Onion Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 Tsp Paprika
  • 2-3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Minced
  • 1-2 Tbsp Chopped Cilantro
  • Bamboo Skewers
  • Bell Pepper, Cut into Squares (Optional)


Clean and cut chicken breast into 6 (almost even) pieces per chicken breast. That will give you 12 pieces then. Mix onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt, pepper, paprika, minced garlic and chopped cilantro into a bowl. Then add chicken breast and 1 tbsp olive oil. Let chicken marinate for 1-2 hours (or more).

Skewer chicken breasts, alternating with some bell peppers (or any other vegetables) if you like. Heat remaining oil in a pan over medium heat. Fry chicken kebabs, rotating it around every 2-3 minutes so that the chicken will cook evenly. Depending on how big your chicken kebab is, it might take 15-20 minutes to cook the chicken through. Cook until chicken juices run clear. You don’t want to consume uncooked chicken, nor do you want to eat over-cooked chicken! This will serve 2-3 people.

June’s Comments: Since this was a Mediterranean inspired kebab, I served it with some Couscous. Instant Couscous from Near East! It’s a great pantry item to have and yes, quite delicious and cooks within minutes! I also steamed some broccoli for a balanced meal. =)
