1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tbsp lemon zest
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp paprika
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp chili pepper flakes
Grilled Chicken Kabobs:
1 1/2 lbs. boneless and skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 red peppers, cut into large chunks
1 red onion, cut into large chunks
Moroccan Lemon and Herb Marinade: Stir together oil, cilantro, parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, cumin, coriander, paprika, garlic, salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
Grilled Chicken Kabobs: 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.
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).
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.)
Tip: Use this marinade for chicken, seafood, lamb, pork, and veggies, before grilling, broiling, or roasting
