Vegetable oil, for the grill

2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 clove garlic, grated

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

24 to 30 small shishito peppers

1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme


  1. Preheat a grill to medium high and brush the grates with vegetable oil. Toss the chicken with the olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Thread onto eight 10-inch skewers along with the peppers.
  2. Grill the kebabs, covered, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the peppers are charred, about 10 minutes.
