Greek Chicken Skewers

Chickenskew

Our family has been making this recipe for years! It’s still one of my favourite recipes served with Greek salad, Tzatziki sauce and warm pita!

Ingredients:

4-5 large chicken breasts cut into 1 inch cubes

Marinade:

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)

Directions:

  1. Combine marinade ingredients in a glass bowl. Add chicken, stir and marinate in fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. 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.
