Recipe: Zesty BBQ Chicken Kebabs with Marinade

Summary: These BBQ chicken kebabs carry an amazing citrus flavor that is very strong and works beautifully as a whole meal in itself. We served our Zesty BBQ Chicken Kebabs with cold Couscous and a watermelon salad.


  • Handful of fresh mint
  • Handful of fresh coriander
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 3 spring onions – chopped small
  • 3 Cloves of garlic – minced
  • 4 Tbsp natural or Greek yoghurt
  • Also: 1 kg chicken


  • Combine all of the Marinade ingredients
  • Chop the chicken into nice fat chunks, mix into the zesty chicken marinade and leave for at least an hour
  • Thread the chicken onto a skewer
  • BBQ for about 10mins or until done – turning regularly
  • Add humus, a bit of yogurt and chicken to pita and serve

We also chopped up and threaded some green peppers and regular onions on a skewer and BBQ’d these for 5 mins. This gave a nice crunch to the kebab.
