Ingredients

Servings:
4
1/2 cup(s)
plain Greek yogurt
2 tblsp
extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp
grated lemon zest
2 tblsp
lemon juice
3
garlic cloves, minced
1 tblsp
fresh oregano, minced
1 tsp
kosher salt
1/2 tsp
freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 lb
boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
tzatziki or hummus, for serving
pita for serving

Directions 5 steps | 135 Minutes

Step 1

In a medium bowl, whisk yogurt, olive oil, lemon zest and juice, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper together.

Step 2

Add the chicken and toss to coat. Place the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours. If using wooden skewers, soak skewers in water while the chicken is marinating.

Step 3

Remove chicken from the marinade and thread chicken onto metal or wooden skewers.

Step 4

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and brush the grill with olive oil. Place skewers on the grill and cook, turning occasionally until the chicken is well browned and an instant-read thermometer reads 160°F, about 10 minutes.

Step 5

Use tongs to slide the chicken off the skewers and onto a serving platter, if desired. Serve chicken with pita, tzatziki or hummus and a simple salad for a complete meal. Enjoy!
