This Lemon Chicken Kebab recipe is quick to prepare and cook and it tastes absolutely delicious. This really is a winner!

We served it with mixed rice and chopped mushrooms and it all went together a real treat. It would also go very well with a mixed salad.

We cooked ours under the grill as in the recipe instructions, but this Lemon Chicken Kebab recipe would be ideal for a barbecue.

For this recipe you will need four skewers at least 25cm (10 inches) long.

The marinate process (leaving the chicken in the liquid mixture) described in the recipe below will be fine if left for two hours, but it will improve the flavour marginally if left overnight. However long you have to spare, make sure it is kept covered in the fridge.

If you are cooking using a barbecue, drip the marinate liquid over the loaded skewers occasionally to keep the chicken moist.

Use a grater to grate off the yellow surface of two of the four lemons, this gives what is called the 'lemon zest'.

Place the chicken chunks, olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, oregano, white wine vinegar, salt and pepper in a bowl, cover it and leave in the fridge to marinate. Leave as long as you can in the range 2 hours to overnight.

Cut the pepper in half, remove the central pith and seeds and cut into 8 decent sized portions. Slice the remaining 2 lemons and cut each slice into quarters

Skewer the pepper, lemon and chicken portions as shown in the picture on the left. Keep the marinate liquid for use in the next step.

Remove the loaded skewer from the grill, pour a teaspoon or so of the marinate liquid over each skewer and replace under the grill. This time put the 'uncooked' side up towards the grill. Cook for another 10 minutes.

Whilst the loaded skewer is cooking, chop the parsley sprigs finely. Heat the remaining marinate liquid in a pan (to just bubbling).
