Wine chicken skewers
I know it seems intimidating to have to think about this the day before, but marinating this overnight makes all the difference in moistness and flavor! It will take you 3 minutes the day before and will be worth every minute!

  1. In a large container, add chicken, wine and onions and marinate overnight.
  2. Remove chicken and discard marinade. (If using wooden skewers soak them in water for at least 20 minutes to avoid burning.)
  3. Place chicken back in container and add olive oil and salt and mix. Place them on skewers.
  4. Place a grill pan on high heat. Add skewers and grill for 5-6 minutes per side.
  5. Remove from heat and add fresh lemon and basil. Serve hot.
Notes & Tips:

I love the simplicity in flavor of this chicken. If you are not serving it with the suggested plum salad, feel free to add more garnish for color and flavor (fresh oranges slices, kalamata olives, dates, sundried tomatoes, peppers...you get the idea...just chop them up and sprinkle on top when ready to serve!)

Tri-color plum salad
This salad is so light and summery and is the best gift you could bring to a BBQ, brunch or Shabbat meal. Don’t be afraid to add grilled chicken, or your favorite cheese!

Notes & Tips:

Leftover tips for tomorrow’s lunch:

Chicken fruit salad:
  • This might seem obvious or too repetitive but this will be worlds better than any takeout chicken salad you will ever order for lunch!
  • Place any leftover chicken with the salad and bring dressing on the side! You will never order takeout again!
