This dish is a blast of flavors, and you guessed it - really simple to make. If you'd like you can also skewer pieces or red pepper and/or red onion between the pieces of chicken. Serve right on top of your favorite light salad. Delicious!

 

INGREDIENTS

1 ½ lbs. chicken thighs or breasts, boneless & skinless 

4 TBSP. fresh lime juice 

2 TBSP. cloves garlic, chopped 

4 TBSP. Kosterina Garlic Olive Oil 

1½ tsp. sea salt & ½ tsp. freshly ground pepper 

1 tsp. cumin seeds, toasted and ground 

1 TBSP. Greek honey 

½ cup cilantro, chopped (optional) 

--- Skewers, metal or wood (if woodbe sure to soak in water for 1 hour) 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1.Trim the chicken and pat it dry. Cut into 1½” cubes or cut it into strips.  

 

2.Prepare the marinade by placing all the ingredients in a big bowl. Mix to combine.  

 

3.To the bowl, add the chicken pieces and coat each one. Cover and refrigerate for two to three hours.  

 

4.Thread the chicken onto the skewers. (If you have cut the chicken into strips instead of cubes, gently fold each strip over itself to form a 1½” cube).  

 

5.Preheat the grill and oil well the grates. Grill the chicken for about 3-4 minutes per side. Using an instant read thermometer check the temperature to ensure that the chicken is cooked to 165°F.

Stuffed eggplant baked to perfection with potatoes is a Greek classic. We provided a creative alternative by filling them with light quinoa, sweet onion and a feta and pomegranate topping. The filling is so good, you can serve it on its own as a Greek twist on tabouli! This version was development by our very own, Anna Gass (Kosterina Executive Chef).
