Moroccan Chicken Skewers

These broiled chicken skewers are finished with the juice of charred lemon halves that have been drizzled with honey, along with a sprinkle of fresh herbs. Cilantro, flat-leaf parsley or mint are good choices, alone or in combination.

WInner WInner, chicken dinner
My friend made this recipe, and it spurred me to buy the Tuesday Nights book. I made it for my parents, they are now getting the book. This chicken is THAT good! I didn't add the grilled lemons and forgot parsley - still delicious. I have been told it is best w/ thighs, not breast meat (thighs are what the recipe calls for). I can't wait to make it again. Easy, savory but sweet, so flavorful!

always a favorite!
A great dish to make when you don't plan ahead and like me, keep a pack of boneless chicken thighs just in case! Made it. many times, tonight on the grill. Came out perfect! I will try it with a little Aleppo or a bit of harissa next time to change it up.

Great flavor, used chicken tenders, further from the heat, took 10 minutes, will do again.

I made this now twice. I tripled the recipe (7 people to feed). It's my favorite dish now. The lemon sprinkle at the end is a must. I saved some sauce and as the chicken is cooking, I add the sauce over it.

I've made this for 2 as well as a crowd. It's a sure winner every time. The only thing I might change is to leave out the honey in the final lemon garnish. The marinade seems sweet enough as-is.
Thanks!

Try using Pomegranate molasses as a drizzle with the fresh herbs. Adds a great texture and taste. Used a lot in middle eastern cooking.

Family favorite. Finished with fresh mint and parsley from my herb garden. Delicious!

Also tried this on the grill - even more flavorful and delicious when charred.

Try using Pomagranate molasses as a finishing drizzle with the herbs. Not as sweet as honey but definitely adds another interesting texture and taste.

Zest and juice from all 3 lemons?

Janelle C.

Hi Mary,

Use the zest and lemon juice from one lemon, then as the instructions state, broil the other two lemons (4 lemon halves) and drizzle with honey before serving.

The recipe doesn't give any clear direction what to do with the lemons. It just lists 3 lemons as ingredients, then tells you to use the zest and juice, and then later to add the 4 lemon halves. Also, you have comments "appearing shortly" from 4 months ago.

Cut the other two in half, roast cut side up with the chicken, and drizzle some honey over them. My sweetheart was sucking these lemons after eating the chicken.

Thanks for asking the question. I too was uncertain so was grateful to find clarification in the comments.

My whole family loves this. The kids request it often! We do it with thighs or tenders.

Hi Michael and Elizabeth -

I believe this recipe has been updated with clearer instructions in ingredient list. Please let us know if you are still uncertain about what to do! Thank you!

This was excellent! My husband said "Wow!" at least three or four times while he was eating it! Also, "30-minute" recipes usually take me 45-60, but this was actually on the table in 30 minutes!
