Tips for Chicken

Instructions

  1. 1Marinate the chicken: In a mixing bowl, whisk together Marie’s® Original Coleslaw Dressing, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Alternate pieces of chicken and onion on each skewer, then place skewers in a shallow baking dish. Pour the marinade mixture over the chicken skewers, coating them well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
  2. 2Prepare the slaw: In a large bowl, stir together the cabbage, onion, parsley, and Marie’s® Original Coleslaw Dressing until thoroughly combined. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes for an extra kick of spice, if you like.
  3. 3Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Brush the grates with a little oil to coat and grill the marinated chicken skewers. Turn skewers occasionally until chicken is fully cooked, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a platter and serve immediately with warm pita bread, slaw, sliced tomatoes, and extra Marie’s® Original Coleslaw Dressing for drizzling.
