  • 6 chicken breasts filets
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1 teaspoon shallot or 1 onion
  • 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence or a few stems of thyme
  • salt and pepper


Start by preparing the marinade:

  • In a container pour juice of ½ lemon, add olive oil and paprika. Stir well. Slice onion or shallot and add it with herbes de Provence (or any dried herb you like). Season with salt and pepper. Stir again
  • Cut the chicken into large cubes, add them to the marinade, combine to coat meat on each side.
  • Set aside for about 2 hours. Combine from time to time so that the marinade impregnates all sides of the chicken pieces.

Thread the marinated chicken onto metal skewers.


    • Cook on the barbecue or under the grill for about 5 to 10 minutes on each side (depending of thickness of chicken cubes and heat), turning frequently, until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and golden-brown
