1 bell pepper, red, cut into 1″ pieces
1 onion, red, cut into 1″ pieces
4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1/4 cups olive oil
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme, dried
1/4 tsp cumin
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
2 cups basil leaves
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1/3 cups olive oil
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

How to Prepare
Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and dried herbs. Add cut vegetables to a bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil mixture. Set aside.
Add cubed chicken to a glass bowl and cover with remaining olive oil mixture. Cover and place in refrigerator to marinate for 2 hours. [You could marinate in less time, the flavor just won’t be as intense].
Alternate vegetables and chicken while threading on skewers [if using wooden skewers you can soak in water to prevent burning will on grill].
Season with salt and pepper.
Grill, rotating until all sides are slightly browned, chicken is cooked, and vegetables have softened.
Serve with basil sauce.
