Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Should be marinated overnight.: 24 hours

Total Time: 24 hours, 35 minutes

Yield: 4 servings Romanian Chix Kebabs

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 ounce mixed chopped herbs (thyme, rosemary, parsley)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 3 ounces plain yogurt

Preparation:

  1. In a plastic zip-top bag, combine herbs, pepper, lemon juice, sugar, ginger, garlic and yogurt. Add chicken cubes, covering all the pieces with marinade, and refrigerate overnight or at least three hours.

  2. Heat grill. Thread chicken pieces on skewers that have been soaked in water for about an hour so they don't catch fire on the grill. Grill chicken kebabs on greased grates about 10-15 minutes or until done. These can also be prepared on an indoor grill, broiler or oven. Serve with a sauce like mujjdei de usturoi made with garlic, sunflower or olive oil and vinegar or beef stock.
