Lemony Garlic Chicken Kebabs with Herbs de Provence

This non-traditional Easter dinner began with a call to Chicken Dijon, a local Greek restaurant, who was not answering their phone.  Closed on Easter! What to do?  With my sister on her way, I foraged in the fridge for something to serve.  I spied a package of chicken, always a staple in my pantry, and some crispy vegetables.  After selecting the main components of my meal, I decided I wanted the chicken to have a sweet and herbaceous marinade.  Lemony garlic chicken kebabs with herbs de Provence was born.  Herbs de Provence is comprised of basil, fennel seed, lavender, marjoram, rosemary, sage, summer savory and thyme.  You can buy it pre-mixed from the market.   This quick and easy dinner was perfect for this sunny, warm Southern California afternoon and can be prepared a day ahead, which is perfect for entertaining.  Serve with mixed grilled vegetables.
