Keyword: grilled chicken kabobs


  • 1 ½ pounds boneless chicken breasts thighs can also be used
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil DIVIDED
  • Juice and zest from one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dry oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • onions, bell peppers, tomatoes or veggies of your choice


  • Cut the chicken into about 1 ½” cubes and add them to a large zip top bag.
  • Whisk together 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, lemon juice and zest, red wine vinegar, oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper to a bowl then pour over the chicken, turning to coat the pieces well. Seal the bag and marinate in the refrigerator 30 minutes up to 6 hours. 
  • If you’re using wooden skewers soak them in water at least 15 minutes before grilling so they don’t burn.
  • Cut the onion and bell peppers into 1" cubes then blend with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  
  • Thread the chicken onto the skewers alternating with the vegetables. Lightly season with salt and pepper then  grill over medium heat (about 375-400 degrees) 4-5 minutes per side until they’re cooked completely through without overcooking.
  • Serve with rice, pita, salad or tzatziki.
