  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or pressed
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • tsp black pepper or more to taste
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs basil, parsley, tarragon
  • 1 lb chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces


  • Whisk together oil, lemon juice, dijon, salt, pepper, garlic, and herbs in a medium sized bowl to combine.
  • Add chicken and stir to coat.
  • Place in fridge for about an hour.
  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in water while the chicken is marinating to prevent burning.
  • Thread chicken on skewers and place on hot, clean, and oiled grill.  Grill for about 15 minutes, flipping the kabobs a few times, or until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
