  • This recipe, as well as our Caribbean inspired grilled chicken recipe, are lower in sodium and sugar than ordinary marinades and grilling sauces, and anything but ordinary!
  • This recipe is naturally gluten-free.
  • You can make this recipe Paleo-friendly by making the drizzle with tahini in place of yogurt, and add 2 more tablespoons of lemon juice.
  • You can make this recipe Whole30-friendly by swapping out for the tahini drizzle, above, and leave the honey out of the glaze. If you’d still like a sweet-savory glaze you can mix 1 date, finely minced into a paste, with the North African cooking sauce.
For the marinade
 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts
 ½ onion cut into large dice
 2 medium zucchinisliced 1/2
 2 cups healthy oil of your choice
 juice from 1 lemon
 salt to taste *Our cooking and seasoning sauces are extremely low in sodium, allowing you to salt to your own tastes/health preferences. Salt does help the flavors permeate the meat, so I recommend a pinch or two to help the marinade really sink into the meat for this quick marinating process.
For the glaze
 3 tbsp Mesa de Vida North African Inspired Cooking & Seasoning Sauce
 salt to taste
 2 tsp honey
For the garlicky herb yogurt drizzle
 1 cup plain yogurt Greek yogurt produces a thicker sauce, regular plain yogurt produces a thinner, dressing-like drizzle
 1-2 garlic cloves peeled
 ¼ cup fresh herbs a combination of basil, cilantro and mint. Parsley also is great. Use any/all that you have on hand
 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
 salt to taste

  1. These kebabs look delicious! I don’t know if I can get those spices here but would definitely try making it with a homemade spice blend.

  2. This sounds and looks yummy. I am definitely going to try this, apart from the first ingredient for the glaze though. I don’t know if I can find that here
