Grilled Chicken Peach and Pastrami Skewers
Serves: 10-12 skewers
  • Marinade:
  • ΒΌ cup olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced OR 2 cubes frozen garlic
  • Assembly:
  • 6 ounces pastrami
  • 1 pound chicken cutlets, cubed
  • 3 peaches, cubed
  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk to combine; set aside.
  2. Cut a slice of pastrami in half along the width, to get two long thin strips of pastrami. Thread the pastrami onto the skewers, around the cubes of chicken and peach. Use both halves of a pastrami slice per skewer. Set aside on a baking sheet and repeat with remaining pastrami, chicken and peaches.
  3. Brush marinade over all sides of the skewers. Broil or grill for 4 minutes. Flip, baste with additional marinade, and grill on the other side for about 4-5 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  1. It takes an extra few minutes to thread the pastrami around the chicken and peaches. For a simpler presentation that saves you time, you can cut the pastrami lengthwise, into strips, and place on skewers in between the chicken and peaches.
Plan Ahead:
  1. Skewers can be prepared a day ahead of time, then rewarmed, uncovered. They make a great appetizer for shabbos day!
