Ingredients

  • 12 oz. chicken breast, boneless, skinless, cut into 12 even pieces
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 8 slices
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 8 pieces
  • 8 cherry tomatoes

    Marinade

  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard (spicy brown may be substituted)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

    Dressing

  • 12 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup frozen peas, cooked
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • Juice of one lemon

Directions

    Simple to prepare, tasty and full of nutritional goodness, these chicken kebabs are the perfect dish to kick off the summer grilling season. A minty dressing makes them delightful and special.

    These kebabs were inspired by the eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus, which has long been a crossing point between Europe, Asia and Africa. For this reason, Cypriot cuisine is a unique blend of many influences.

    Marinating the chicken ensures flavorful, juicy kebabs. The blend of extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar, mustard, oregano, garlic and parsley produces a perfect marinade.

    Pureed peas and mint give the dressing an attractive pastel green base. Mint is abundant during summer and contains health-protective phytochemicals. Peas, one of summer's earliest crops, lend a light earthy quality and healthful fiber. Garlic, a hint of cumin, and refreshing lemon juice round out this summer dressing.

    You can get a head start on these kebabs by marinating the chicken overnight. Then just assemble the kebabs the following day. Serve the kebabs with a garden salad dressed with a basic vinaigrette.

    You can even add a side of seasoned black beans. Just saute some finely chopped scallions, diced tomato and minced garlic. Then add cooked beans and heat through. The result is a healthy, colorful and appetizing meal.
