Simple Chicken Kebabs

Does food on a stick always taste better? I don't know about that, but it is always funner to eat.  

These don't take long to cook because the chicken pieces are smaller and you can have them chopped and marinated the night before - so all you have to do it heat your grill and stick the meat on the sticks. 

I always at least double this recipe, If I am going to go to all this effort, then I am for sure going to get more than one meal out of it. - This makes amazing chicken salad, gyros, and casseroles.


1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces 
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1 tablespoon olive oil
1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
8 wooden skewers, soaked in water (If you soak them in salt water - it will make them taste even Better!)


 Cut your chicken into pieces, 

In a bowl, toss the chicken, garlic, thyme, oil and 1/2 tsp salt and pepper each. Pour your marinade into a plastic bag and add your chicken (or just add your chicken to the bowl and cover) Let marinade over night or at least 2 hours. 

Heat grill to medium-high.

Thread the chicken on the skewers.

Grill the chicken, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through 7 to 10 minutes.
