Total Time 25minutes
3poundschicken breasts, cut into cubes (about 4 chicken breasts)
2bell peppers, cut into large pieces
1red onion, cut into large pieces
wooden or metal skewers(about 18-24 wooden skewers)
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, garlic, paprika, turmeric, salt and lemon juice. Put the chicken in a large ziplock bag and add the olive oil marinate to it. Seal and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 6 hours.
While the chicken is marinating, soak the wooden kabob skewers in water, if using, for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat grill on medium heat. Prepare the skewers alternating with the marinated chicken, bell peppers, and red onion. Grill chicken kabobs for about 4-5 minutes rotating once (grilling two sides of the kabob) until cooked through and internal temperature of chicken is 160 degrees. Set aside and tent with foil. Let sit for 2-3 minutes before serving.
Great served over rice or couscous. Also makes for excellent leftovers for pita sandwiches or on top of a salad. Make ahead by preparing the skewers and grilling before eating. Can be made up to a day in advance, just refrigerate in an airtight container.
