One Classy Dish Recipe
Middle Eastern Chicken Kabobs
1. Put chicken in a gallon size ZipLock bag. Add salt, pepper, lemon juice, turmeric, saffron, minced garlic, onion powder, & olive oil. Zip closed & mix together until all chicken is coated evenly. Place in the fridge to marinate for 4-6 hours up to 24 hours.
2. Skewer chicken one piece at a time onto a metal or wooden skewer. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the skewers on the grill. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken juices run clear. Turn & brush with reserved marinade frequently.
This is a Whole30 & Paleo approved dish, but you can use cauliflower rice in place of the Lebanese rice to pair with the chicken. You can use garlic powder if you don't have fresh garlic or you can use fresh onions in place of the onion powder. The recipe can be adjusted to taste so if you like pepper, add more. I made set measurements but they can be adjusted as needed. Also you can use this Lebanese Rice Recipe or the Persian rice recipe known as Polo Rice. If you don't have time to make a specialty rice a plain basmati or jasmine rice will pair well.
