Vietnamese Lemon Chicken Skewers


Don't marinate the chicken too long or the acidity will "cook" it.



  1. Combine the scallions, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, pepper, sugar, fish sauce and oil in a medium-size bowl.
  2. Slice the chicken crosswise on the diagonal into wide strips. Place in the marinade, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Soak the skewers in warm water for 1 hour.
  4. Heat broiler or grill. Thread the chicken strips onto the skewers.
  5. Broil 5 inches from the heat source for about 4 minutes per side, or until done.
  6. Alternately, grill the chicken for about 4 minutes per side.

Serves 4.
