In a bowl whisk together the lemon juice, lemon peel and garlic. Slowly whisk in the oil and season with salt and pepper. Pour marinade over the skewers.

Step 4

Prepare grill (medium high heat).

Step 5

Arrange lettuces on a large platter.

Step 6

Grill chicken until cooked through (5 minutes per side) and grill shrimp until done and pink on all sides (4 minutes per side). Remove skewers from grill and place on top of the lettuce.

We enjoying grilling out this time of year and we enjoyed this chicken very much. It went very well with a Broccoli salad I made.

Loved the ease of preparation and the tastiness of this dish...I cut this down to one serving and I was the lucky one who got to eat it...I zested the lemon instead of grating it...I also cooked it on my George Foreman Grill...worked great...I was pleasantly surprised at how great it tasted with the plan lettuce...I got some veggies with my protein...made for "Bill Board" tag game...

I'm on vacation in Florida and made these for my cousin and her hubby and I. They are so delicious on the grill prepared like this! I used double the shrimp and no chicken. Thank you for a great shrimp dish that I will make many more times Ellie! Linda

Only a few ingredients but tasted great. We loved both the chicken and shrimp this way.
