More Summertime BBQing ....

Hubby and I have recently found out our new home purchase has been delayed for another year. We were so excited to be moving out of our little apartment and finally having a place to call our own. One of the things we have been looking forward to the most is its rooftop deck and being able to own a bbq of our own... now there's a heartbreaker :(

So we've decided no need to wait until then to grill and we have started practicing with some recipes now and taking them to my sister's place for grilling there. Here's a great chicken skewer recipe with the slightest hint of lemon... Great for a hot summer's day like today... We served them with some vegetable skewers that were marinaded in Italian salad dressing. Great accompaniment to this bbq.

Lemon Chicken Kabobs
By: The Canadian Living Test Kitchen


1 lb (500 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tbsp (25 mL) olive oil
2 tbsp (25 mL) lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ tsp (2 mL) each dried thyme and salt
½ tsp (2 mL) poultry seasoning ( I added)
¼ tsp (1 mL) pepper


Cut chicken into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces. In bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Add chicken and toss to coat. Put all ingredients into a resealable bag and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.

Once ready to BBQ, soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes. In the meantime, seed and cut pepper into 1 inch chunks. Alternately thread chicken and pepper onto skewers. Cook on greased grill, until the chicken is browned and no longer pink inside, 12 to 16 minutes.

Oh no, another year? That sucks! How long before they let you out of the contract?
