Recipe of the Month: Moroccan Chicken Kabobs

20 May Recipe of the Month: Moroccan Chicken Kabobs

moroccan-chickenTo pick one recipe to share a month is a challenge, but this one had our mouth’s watering! Perfect to break in that charcoal grill too. Sweet and just a little spicy, this recipe gets its enticing flavor and aroma from cinnamon and a touch of cloves. Because the meat is prepared with a dry rub, it doesn’t require marinating time.

What you’ll need

Dry Rub

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar

Kebobs

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 small red onions, peeled and cut into 1-inch-wide sections
  • 2 bell peppers, cleaned and cut into 1-inch squares
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 12 (10-inch) bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

How to make it

  1. I a small bowl, combine the dry rub ingredients and mix well.
  2. Cut the meat into 1 1/2-inch cubes and put them in a gallon-size zip-lock bag with the rub mix. Seal the bag and shake it vigorously until all the chicken is well coated.
  3. Place the onions and peppers in a gallon-size zip-lock bag, add the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Seal the bag and shake it vigorously to coat the vegetables well.
  4. Assemble the kebobs by alternately skewering pieces of chicken, onions, and peppers.
  5. Prepare a charcoal fire or set a gas grill to medium-high, close the lid, and heat until hot — about 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Grill the kebobs, turning occasionally, until the chicken is no longer pink inside, about 8 to 10 minutes on a gas grill. Serves 6 to 8.
