Moroccan Lemon and Herb Marinade for Chicken Kabobs

Fresh and zesty with a hint of spice, this Moroccan-style marinade is great for kabobs.


Moroccan Lemon and Herb Marinade: Stir together oil, cilantro, parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, cumin, coriander, paprika, garlic, salt, pepper and chili flakes.

  1. Grilled Chicken Kababs: Fill FoodSaver® Container with the marinade and chicken; turn the valve to the marinate setting, remove the liquid reservoir, connect the FoodSaver® Handheld Sealer and press the Marinate Button. Allow the sealer to run a 12-minute cycle to infuse chicken with marinade.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high; grease grate well. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Thread chicken, red peppers and onion onto skewers (if using bamboo skewers, soak in water for 15 to 20 minutes beforehand to prevent burning).
  3. Grill for 5 to 7 minutes per side or until chicken is grill marked and cooked through. (Alternatively, broil skewers on foil-lined baking sheet.)


Use this marinade for chicken, seafood, lamb, pork and veggies, before grilling, broiling or roasting.
