  • 500g chicken breast
  • 2 lemons
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 bamboo skewers


  • Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes prior to cooking to avoid burning.
  • Cut the chicken breast into bite-sized pieces and place them in a bowl.
  • First, zest the lemons and squeeze out their juice. In a bowl, mix together minced garlic, olive oil, smoked paprika, cumin, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Then add lemon zest and juice and combine well.
  • Mix well, ensuring all pieces are coated with the marinade. Let it rest for at least 1 hour in the fridge.
  • Preheat the grill or a grill pan over medium heat.
  • Thread the marinated chicken onto the soaked skewers.
  • Grill the skewers for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and slightly charred.
  • Serve hot with a side salad or on a bed of fluffy rice.

Ideal for a backyard BBQ, a family dinner, or a fun meal prep, these skewers are versatile and easy to make. The lemon zest in the marinade lends a unique freshness to the chicken, while the smoked paprika and cumin add a delightful depth of flavor. Served hot off the grill, these skewers promise a juicy, tangy, and savory experience that will make your taste buds dance with joy.
