These Greek Chicken Kebabs are marinated in a delicious Greek inspired blend of flavors and come together quickly so you can have the best juicy and tender chicken skwers on the table for dinner tonight! 

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound Farmer Focus chicken breasts (or chicken tenders)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced or grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried ground turmeric
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)

Instructions

  1. Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces or strips and place in a large bag, bowl, or shallow baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Add olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, oregano, salt, turmeric, paprika, black pepper and lemon juice to a medium bowl and whisk until smooth.
  3. Pour the marinade over the chicken. Move the chicken around until well coated. Marinate for minimum 30 minutes or up to 6 hours 
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and weave or thread onto your skewer. If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes before adding the chicken!
  5. Preheat the grill or a grill pan to a medium-high heat. Brush the grill or grill pan with oil of choice to ensure the kabobs don’t stick.
  6.  Grill the chicken until fully cooked and no pink remains, about 10 minutes, turning the skewers at 5 minutes.
  7. Remove from the grill and serve with our greek salad, rice, tzatziki sauce!

Notes

Want to add veggies to your skewers? Go for it! Onions or bell pepper would be great here.

Meat actually stays juicier during cooking when it’s touching — but not packed too tightly against — whatever’s next to it. Don’t overstuff your skewers, but don’t leave too much space between ingredients, either.
