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

  2. Grill the kebabs, covered, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the peppers are charred, about 10 minutes.
