Grilled Cilantro Chicken Skewers Over Lemon Garlic Linguini

Monday, June 18, 2012

We spent all weekend working together outside in the glorious blazing sun on our back deck. 
So excited to show you our rocking chairs.
I don't know what it is about working around the house, but it always makes us so hungry.
I had chicken marinating all weekend that I put on skewers, along with cherry tomatoes, and put it all on the charcoal grill while I cooked linguine..  the result was magic. 
I hope you get a chance to make this ~ it was so so yummy while being easy to make. 
The marinade was thrown together with what was in our 
pantry at the time {which always seems to be how I stumble upon my favorites!}:
{1/2 - 1 cup soy sauce}
{1/4 cup olive oil}
{3 cloves of garlic}
{good squeeze of honey}
{pinch or two of sea salt}
{cut fresh cilantro}
{one lemon's worth of juice}
Shake it all up in a freezer bag. Cut the chicken into chunks + coat them in the bag.
We ate the first batch of bbq'd chicken after it had only marinated for a few hours and it was good. 
But nothing compared to the flavor after waiting 48 hours!
Put the chicken and cherry tomatoes on skewers directly on the bbq. 
Meanwhile, cook the pasta al dente, with a few good handfuls of sea salt. 
Drain, but do not rinse.
Grate about 2 cups of parmigiano reggiano cheese.  
Toss the linguine with the grated cheese & 2 cloves of garlic,  drizzling
in a good amount of olive oil as you do. 
Top the pasta with the chicken and tomato skewers & 
squeeze a lemon + sprinkle more fresh cilantro over the whole plate of deliciousness.
Hope you love it as much as we did!
