In the past few days, I have received several requests for this recipe. Here it is! Chicken Kebabs in Lettuce Cups with Tomato-Red Onion Salad is full of fresh flavors with an easy prep. What can be better?
Chicken Kebabs in Lettuce Cups with Tomato-Red Onion Salad (serves 4)
1-1/4 pound ground chicken
1/2 medium red onion; half fine diced and half sliced thin
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup crumbled feta
½ cup fresh mint leaves; half chopped and half whole leaves / larger ones torn
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
8 Bibb lettuce leafs
Eight bamboo skewers
Soak skewers in water for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, diced onion, chopped mint, feta, garlic, salt and pepper. Divide mixture in half and into 4 portions per half. Form each portion around skewer and place onto baking sheet. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes, until internal temperature is 165 degrees.
Meanwhile, prepare tomato-red onion salad by combining tomatoes, onions, mint, olive oil, vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Serve kebabs in bibb lettuce leaves topped with the salad. Serve with whole grain couscous or a gluten-free grain, if desired. Enjoy!
