Artichoke & Asparagus Chicken Skewers

Artichoke & Asparagus Chicken Skewers  (22) WM

My husband and I really, really, really liked this dish!  We made it a second time with a pork tenderloin for a friend that can’t eat chicken and it’s equally as yummy!  The lemon herb vinaigrette is a little over kill / way too much oil for this dish so we skipped it the second time – I would highly recommend doing that.  The asparagus  that we get here in Colorado are way too skinny to put on the wood kabob stick, so I simply put them in the bag of marinade after I took the chicken / pork out of the bag, rolled the asparagus around a bit to coat them and then grilled them separately.

Serves: 4

Time: Refrigerate overnight, then 1 hour, approximately

1 1/2 – 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken, cut into bite size pieces
2 cloves garlic

2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1) Add the ingredients for the chicken marinade to a food processor and blend until smooth, add to a gallon sized zip-lock bag with the chicken pieces and massage the marinade over the chicken.  Refrigerate overnight.
2) The day of:  Mix all of the ingredients of the minted goat cheese yogurt together, cover and set aside in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
3) Pour the lemon juice and add the lemon zest into a small sauce pan over low heat; bring to a simmer and simmer for about 1 minute or until the zest absorbs the juice.  You do not want the zest burn and get stuck to the pan.  Add this mixture to the olive oil, parsley, salt, honey and lime juice. Whisk to combine and set aside.
4) Get the coals of your BBQ ready. Soak the wood kabob skewers for about 5 minutes.
5) Thread the chicken and artichoke hearts on the wood kabob artichoke .  Place the asparagus in the bag of marinade and move around to coat.  Place the chicken/artichoke kabob artichoke plus asparagus on the grill and grill until the chicken is cooked through and the asparagus are tender but aren’t overcooked.
6) Serve the chicken with the the lemon herb vinaigrette, the minted goat cheese yogurt and couscous on the side.
