Lemon Garlic Chicken Kabobs

Kabobs are one of those summertime meals.  These are tasty and easy to do.  Just make sure you leave some time for the chicken to marinate--allow 2-8 hours.   Grill up some veggies and french bread and you have a meal!

For the marinade:
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Zest of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoon minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more, to taste
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more, to taste

For kabobs:
vegetables of your choice cut into cube...suggestions are peppers, mushrooms, onion, eggplant

Mix the marinade with:
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4-inch pieces

Soak bamboo skewers at least 20 minutes in water.  Thread chicken and vegetables on skewers leaving a bit of room between each piece of chicken.  Grill til no longer pink--8 to 12 minutes.

Baste  the skewers with:
Whisk together:
Juice of 1 lemon lemon
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 T. shallots
