A Family Favorite and Entertaining Staple

I’ve been making these Grilled Chicken, Red Onion and Mint Kebabs for years, ever since the original recipe was published in Bon Appétit.

My husband and I have been refining our version of the recipe over the years. These kebabs are now an entertaining staple. We make them frequently, especially when we have family and friends over at our Vermont lake house during the summer.

Easy, Do Ahead Preparation

The best part about these kebabs, is that you can do all the prep work before your guests arrive. First, let the chicken marinate in the wonderful Greek flavors of mint, lemon, oregano and garlic. Then assemble the kebabs, and stick them in the fridge for the afternoon.

    I used just over 600grams of chicken breasts and got 9 kebabs with 5 to 6 pieces of chicken on each, which fed the 3 of us perfectly and was MMMMs all round and served with a garden salad. Cooked on the indoor grill and they took about 10 to 12 minutes and were beautifully moist, would consider making mini ones to take on a picnic. Thank you Chef floWer, made for Edition 7 – Make My Recipe.
