3
large cloves garlic, crushed
2
tablespoons finely chopped fresh or 2 teaspoons dried rosemary leaves
1
tablespoon finely chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon pepper
1/4
cup fresh lemon juice
6
tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2
lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1
large red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1
large red onion, cut into 1-inch wedges
  1. In large shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix garlic, rosemary, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper, 3 tablespoons of the lemon juice and 5 tablespoons of the oil. Add chicken; turn to coat. Cover or seal; refrigerate 30 minutes to marinate.
  2. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon oil; set aside.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. On 6 (10- to 12-inch) metal skewers, alternately thread chicken, bell pepper and onion, leaving space between pieces.
  4. Place skewers on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with lemon juice mixture, until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are tender. Discard any remaining lemon juice mixture.
