Bird on a Wire
341 calories, 4 servings


¼ C lemon juce
1 T liquid honey
1 T olive oil
1 T oregano
1 T mint
2 t balsamic vinegar
2 t minced garlic
½ t salt
¼ t black pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in to chunks

Combine all marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place chicken in a large, heavy-duty, resealable plastic bag. Add marinade and seal bag. Turn bag several times to coat the chicken with the marinade.

Marinate in the refrigerator for 6 hours – one hour minimum if in a rush.

Preheat grill to high setting. Thread chicken pieces onto metal skewers and discard marinade. Coat grill with cooking spray or brush lightly with oil.

Grill chicken for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally until no longer pink in the center.
Take care not to overcook chicken, or it will be dry.

Serve hot with Cool Cucumber-Dill Sauce (recipe below).

Wonderful with a Greek salad and hummus with warm pita wedges!
