An easy and quick recipe for lemon and garlic chicken kebabs
Lemon garlic chicken kebabs – the name of this recipe is much trickier than the method, I promise you. I know when you make this you will definitely love it! It is easy to make for the BBq or on the grill. If you have a George Foreman type grill or teppanyaki this can easily be cooked on that too!
When to enjoy lemon garlic chicken kebabs
With the weather heating up right now, many of us dream about BBQs. A time to gather family members and friends around the patio to eat, drink and be merry. If that sounds like your idea of a perfect weekend, then get this recipe added to your barbeque repertoire.
(Of course, if you’re not keen on al fresco dining, this can be made and devoured indoors, too!)
The combination of the freshly squeezed lemon juice (although you can cheat and use Jif if you prefer) and crushed garlic (I have the best garlic press – you don’t even have to peel the cloves before use!) is amazing but not overpowering. The use of herbs adds an incredible freshness to it, meaning you don’t feel as though you are eating something heavy or unhealthy.
Enjoying this recipe on Slimming World and other diets
In fact, this meal is perfect for those of you following Slimming World and/or if you are gluten-free or dairy-free (if you omit the yoghurt or use a dairy-free yoghurt). It’s a hit with families, too – so no more arguing about what you’re going to eat if you stick this on your weekly meal planner.
If you are looking for the syns in this recipe then the only syns are in the olive oil. You can easily reduce the amount of olive oil if you prefer or omit it altogether and add a little water instead. It will change the taste slightly but if it helps your plan this week then the choice is yours.
Olive oil is synned at 6 syns per tbsp. This is a 4 portion recipe and uses 4 tbsp in total so each portion will be 6 syns per portion made to the recipe.
