Simple Kabob Marinade

So, you may notice that chicken thighs are often much cheaper than chicken breast. But what can you do with thigh meat?

A really simple thing to do is Kabobs! Here's a simple base that can be a great marinade. Leave the chicken in it for 30 minutes to a day--but remember, the olive oil will congeal if you put this in the fridge.

2 sizeable chicken thighs, cut into bite sized pieces
2 cloves of garlic
juice of one lemon
1/4 cup of olive oil
salt and pepper
(other spices such as cilantro, oregeno, paprika, turmeric, cinnamon, and cayenne are also good in various combinations too)

Easy, right? Just put the chicken pieces with the rest of the marinade, and then you can either put them on skewers with vegetables to either broil or grill. Tonight, we just broiled the chicken and then put in pitas with cucumber and tomato. Delicious!
