Ingredients

For the marinade:

For the skewers:

  • 17 ounce Turkey Chunks (500g)
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper , large
  • 1 Yellow Red Bell Pepper , large
  • 1 Onion , medium

Instructions

  • Place the marinade ingredients in a bowl that is large enough to hold all the meat. Give it a stir and add in the turkey chunks. Use your hands or a spoon to coat the meat with marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours (or overnight).
  • Cut the peppers and onion into chunks (similar size to the meat, if possible) and thread them as well as the turkey chunks onto the skewers (meat + pepper + onion + meat, etc).
  • Grill on medium to high heat for 10-15 minutes or until the meat is cooked through.

Notes

  1. Use either turkey breast or thighs. My preference is the thighs. Also chicken can be used.
  2. Instead of a bowl, a Ziploc bag can be used for marinating.
  3. The color of the peppers doesn’t really matter so you can use what you have on hand or what works best for you. I like to use yellow and red because they make the kabobs colorful and pretty to look at.
  4. Optional: dried chili flakes can be also added to the marinade. Just be careful with the amount you put in. I tried it twice – once with 1 teaspoon (they turned out very spicy) and once with ½ teaspoon (you could barely taste any spiciness).
  5. Skewers: If you have metal skewers, don’t hesitate and use those! When using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to stop them from burning. I suggest threading less meat on the wooden skewers as they might break when too heavy (that is why I prefer using metal skewers).
  6. The grill grates: brushing them with oil prior to grilling will stop the kabobs from sticking to them.
