Grilled Chicken Fajita Kebabs with Guacamole
Prep Time: 8 hours, 50 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 9 hours, 5 minutes
2 chicken breasts, cut in bite size pieces
1 onion, cut in large bite size pieces
2 zucchinis, cut in medium bite size cubes/pieces
1 capsicum, cut in bite size pieces
Guacamole, for serving
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup fresh lime or lemon juice
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp paprika or smoked paprika
1 tsp chilli flakes (optional, to taste)
1 tsp sea salt (to taste)
freshly ground pepper
4 – 6 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil (to taste)
1 drop of Young Living Lime essential oil
1 drop Young Living Coriander essential oil (optional, to taste)
In a medium-large glass or stainless bowl whisk all the marinade ingredients together.
Place the chicken in the bowl with the fajita marinade and gently mix well to make sure all of the chicken pieces are well coated. Cover and place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 8 hours.
When ready to cook, preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Place marinated chicken, onion, zucchini and peppers onto skewers.
You can also just use the chicken on the skewers and sauté the marinade veggies in a pan with a little oil until cooked and serve with the chicken kebabs.
Discard leftover marinade or re-heat gently on the stove until reduced by half then to pour over cooked kebabs before serving. You can also bake the kebabs if you prefer in a 180c oven for approx. 15 – 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the kebabs on the grill, cover, and cook until the chicken is opaque and cooked through, approx. about 8 – 12 minutes, turning once or twice during cooking. Transfer to a warmed platter and serve immediately with guacamole.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Makes: Approx. 1½ cups
2 ripe avocados, pits removed
2 tbsp fresh lime or lemon juice (to taste)
1 tbsp finely chopped coriander or parsley
2 tbsp finely chopped red onion (optional)
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp sea salt (to taste)
freshly ground pepper (to taste)
½ cup cooked black or pinto beans
½ cup grated broccoli stems
½ cup finely chopped tomatoes
½ tsp fresh or dried thyme leaves
½ tsp maple syrup or honey (to taste)
Chilli flakes (to taste)
Jalapeños, finely chopped (to taste)
In a medium-sized bowl (glass, stainless or plastic) gently mash the avocado with the lime or lemon juice.
Add the rest of the ingredients and gently mix to combine. Add any of the additional ingredients and gently mix.
Check for seasoning, add a little more salt, lime or lemon culinary oil, if desired. It is best served immediately but will keep for a few hours in the refrigerator.
Note: Try adding a swirl of Young Living Black Pepper essential oil and/or Young Living Thyme essential oil, but a little thyme oil goes a long way so use sparingly. Use the toothpick method for stronger essential oils. Place a clean toothpick in your oil bottle and shake a little to get oil on it then swirl the toothpick into the guacamole and stir well, add a little more, if desired by using a clean toothpick.
Tip: If you are not a fan of coriander add parsley instead.
