Ingredients

Greek Lemon Chicken Kabobs

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into approximately 1 inch chunks
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Tzatziki Sauce

  • 1 cup peeled and finely diced cucumber
  • 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt very firm
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions

Greek Lemon Chicken Kabobs

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients, then add the chicken and toss to coat.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes to 4 hours or even overnight.
  • Thread the chicken on to skewers..
  • Heat the grill to medium high heat and oil the grates. Grill the chicken for 4-5 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink inside.

Tzatziki Sauce

  • Peel the cucumber and remove the seeds with a spoon. Finely dice the cucumber. Pat dry with paper towel or a clean cloth to remove as much moisture as you can so that the sauce isn't runny.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and whisk together.
  • Add the cucumber and refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with a sprinkle of fresh dill, if desired.

Notes

This is a great recipe to make ahead of time. Add the marinade to the chicken, package for the freezer and freeze. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight, then grill or bake in the oven.
