Moroccan-Spiced Chicken Skewers
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 4 (6 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
  • Sauce:
  • 2 cups whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped mint leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 green bell peppers, cut into cubes
  • 1 small red onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


  1. Whisk olive oil, 1/4 cup mint, cilantro, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, honey, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 cloves garlic, paprika, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and cayenne in a large bowl. Reserve 1/4 cup marinade in a separate bowl.
  2. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over chicken. Press air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade. Place in a bowl and refrigerate for 5 hours.
  3. Whisk yogurt, 1/2 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup mint, 2 cloves garlic, lemon zest, and 1 teaspoon salt together in a bowl to make sauce. Cover and place in the refrigerator.
  4. Toss green bell peppers and red onion in the reserved 1/4 cup marinade. Remove chicken from the bag and discard all marinade. Thread chicken, peppers, and onion alternately onto skewers.
  5. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Arrange skewers on the grill. Close lid and cook, turning once or twice, until chicken is firm to the touch, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from grill and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with cold sauce.
