Moroccan Chicken Kebabs

Moroccan Chicken Kebabs

Anything Moroccan just sound exotic and scrumptious right? Well, here I have to be honest. I’ve never had authentic Moroccan food, and I wouldn’t even know where to get it if I wanted it. But I found a Moroccan spice blend on epicurious and knew right away that I’d love the flavors.

Cumin, cinnamon, paprika, ginger, cayenne and coriander all mixed together in just the right proportions. I made the spice blend, skewered some chicken and sweet Vidalia onion onto kebabs and rubbed it all over with olive oil, salt and pepper and the spices.

Is there anything better than meat on a stick? I love that kebabs are easy to grill, easy to portion and look great. Once these came off the grill, I topped them with chopped olives. The kebabs were juicy, spicy and aromatic, and the olives were a perfect briny contrast to the seasoned chicken.

I’m glad I stumbled on this spice mix because I know these kebabs are going to be around all summer long. Say hello to grilling season!
