Greek Chicken Skewers Recipe
This Greek Chicken Skewers recipe from Registered Dietitian Richelle Tabelon is from Richelle’s blog Faithfull Eating.
Our family has been making this recipe for years! It’s still one of my favorite recipes served with Greek salad, Tzatziki sauce, and warm pita!
4-5 large chicken breasts cut into 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp liquid honey
1 Tbsp avocado or canola oil
1 Tbsp dry oregano (or 2 Tbsp fresh oregano minced)
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp black pepper (freshly ground is better)
- Combine marinade ingredients in a glass bowl. Add chicken, stir and marinate in fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight.
- Thread chicken onto skewers and discard marinade. (Metal skewers are easiest because they do not burn.) Spray or grease a large piece of tinfoil and lay out on BBQ. Cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center (turn occasionally). OR broil on high on greased foil-lined cookie sheet in oven for approximately 4 minutes on each side (when broiling watch carefully because the chicken can burn fast). Be careful not to overcook or chicken will be dry.
This Greek Chicken Skewer recipe is loaded with flavor and a family favorite healthy recipe you will love.
