Chicken Caesar Skewers

Serving Size: 4
Total Time:

Quickly marinate the chicken in a Caesar-inspired marinade flavored with garlic and anchovies before skewering and broiling. You can serve the chicken with lettuce leaves for wrapping.


  • 0.5 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp minced anchovies
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 Pound boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 12 long wooden skewers, soaked in water for 1 hour
  • Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, for garnish
  • Romaine lettuce and lemon wedges, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the mustard, olive oil, anchovies and garlic. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the broiler and position the rack 6 inches from the heat. Thread the chicken onto skewers and arrange on a large baking sheet. Broil for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer the skewers to a platter. Sprinkle with grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and serve with lettuce cups and lemon wedges.
