Chicken Marinade Recipe

I adore making fun dishes my children will like to prepare and eat. I found this wonderful recipe this morning on my blog list I read and thought my son would love to help. I'll prepare some brown rice and broccali to go along with it.

1 Cup of Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup of Olive Oil
10 – 12 Large, Fresh Basil Leaves ripped into small dime size pieces
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh garlic
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper

• Cover the pre-cut chicken with the ripped basil leaves
• Add the garlic, salt and pepper to the chicken and basil leaves
• Pour the lemon juice and olive oil over the seasoning and chicken
• Cover the container and shake well to mix and dissolve the seasoning
• Allow to marinate for a minimum of 20 minutes and up to 1 hour before assembly

Chicken Kebab Recipe
Makes 8 Kebabs


1lb Chicken Breast Tenders Cut into Bite Sized Pieces

Marinade (listed above)

1 Orange Pepper
2 Small Yellow Squash
Package of Baby Bella Mushrooms
Package of Grape Tomatoes
1 Zucchini

8 Shish Kebab Skewers

• Soak wooden kebab skewers in a container of water for 15 minutes
• Chop the zucchini, summer squash and pepper into pieces the size of a silver dollar
• Assemble the shish kebabs by alternating one piece of chicken with a vegetable, mixing up the vegetables so that each skewer has at least one of each; larger skewers can contain more
• Place the finished kebabs on a broiler tray in the oven and broil on high for 10 minutes
• Turn the kebabs and continue broiling on high for an additional 5 – 10 minutes, checking at 5 minutes for readiness
• Serve the kebabs with hot brown rice or over some sauteed spinach
