Grilled Greek Chicken Skewers
Bright, zesty, and flavorful, these Grilled Greek Chicken Skewers are the perfect weeknight dinner. Chunks of juicy tender chicken marinated in Greek flavors then grilled either indoors or outdoors, you’ll have dinner ready in no time.
Cube the chicken and place in a bowl. Add in the marinade ingredients and mix well to coat with the chicken.
Cover and marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hr.
Soak the chicken skewers if you are using wooden skewers.
Preheat the grill right before you start arranging the skewers.
Remove the chicken from the fridge and skew 5-6 pieces on each skewer, depending on the size of your skewers.
Spray the grill with some oil and grill the chicken on each side for 4-5 minutes, or until fully cooked at 165 F, and a little charred.
Transfer to a dish and serve immediately.
Fresh lemon is ideal for this recipe. I would not recommend using bottled lemon juice for this as you have that fresh and bright citrus flavor.
To make this spicier, you can add more chili flakes or even some cayenne pepper.
If you are worried about the meat sticking to the skewer, spray them with a bit of non-stick spray before placing your ingredients onto the skewer.
Feel free to add some vegetables to this like bell peppers, onions, cucumbers, olives, and more. You can also serve them with my Greek Orzo Salad!
Always use a preheated grill so the chicken doesn’t stick. Be sure to cut everything to the same size so the chicken cooks evenly.
