I can’t attest to the authenticity of this recipe, but I’m okay with that. The combination of chicken, vegetables, and seasonings sound healthy and delicious. I’m all for that! Plus I’m always looking for tasty ways to make boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I know it’s healthy, but the stuff can get boring real quick. I don’t think that will be a problem with these Greek chicken skewers.
Dip the sizzling skewers in tzatziki or hummus, stuff ’em in a pita, or spread ’em over a bed of spinach or Greek salad. This is a wonderfully uncomplicated and delicious dish.
The list of ingredients for this recipe is fairly short, and there’s nothing unusual about it. Many of the items, like oregano, olive oil, salt, and pepper, are pantry staples you probably won’t have to shop for. I had to pick up the chicken, onion, and bell peppers, but that wasn’t so bad.
This recipe didn’t list any times, but it went together very smoothly. Here’s how my time broke down:
- 12 minutes to prep
- 30 minutes to marinate
- 8 minutes to thread the chicken and vegetables onto the skewers
- 10 minutes to cook
- 1 hour total
If you’re pressed for time, you can easily prep this ahead of time by chopping the chicken and vegetables and pre-mixing the marinade. I made some tzatziki sauce the night before I planned to sever these chicken skewers, so I prepped them at the same time. The next day I marinated the chicken while I let it sit on the countertop and come up to room temperature. Then it was just a matter of threading the chicken skewers and grilling them. I let the frill preheat while I threaded the chicken and vegetables, then I grilled the skewers for 10 minutes, turning them a few times. They were super easy!
