Yes yes I know it's cheating. These are baked not grilled and not fried. Psst they are healthier and delicious no one will ever know! Check out this marinade I make, then freeze it until I need it for a quick dinner or perfect for get together with family and friends! Tender juicy chicken and a great finger food for any party!
Here's what I do:
I marinate the chicken and add to a freezer bag. When ready to use I take it out the night before and thaw in the refrigerator. It's all ready to bake and then I spear the chicken after it's cooked and make baked kabobs! If you want grill marks to really fool them use a cast iron grilling skillet and bake them in it for that charred look.
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breast meat or pork cut into cubes
Place all in a freezer zip lock bag and marinade for 3 to 4 hours or freeze until ready to use.
When you are ready to use, place on a deep cookie sheet lined with parchment or 13x9 baking pan.
Juice and all bake at 400 degrees around 25 minutes until juices run clear in the chicke.
Cool thread with short skewers or just toothpicks as an appetizer.
Terrific dipped in orange marmalade or even marinara sauce.
