I could eat Greek food all day every day no problem. I love those bold, fresh, herby flavors and the fact that it is healthy but still tastes so flavorful.

This Greek Chicken Kabobs recipe is one I have made a lot lately, especially since we started a weekly date night. Every Friday we make something that’s traditional in another country and if it were up to me, I would alternate between Mexico (hello, steak tacos and margaritas) and Greece. My favorite culinary destinations.

This Greek Chicken Kebab recipe will save bbq season!

As much as I love grilled chicken, let’s just admit that chicken breasts can be a little problematic. They can easily get dry and overcook within minutes, especially on the grill.

Enter Greek Chicken breast skewers!

If you grill chicken breasts that have been cut into chunks and threaded on skewers, there will be more surface area exposed to the heat of the grill.

This means, that as long as you grill them quickly on high direct heat, the inside will be done when the outside has lovely grill marks. Genius, right?

Want to take these Greek chicken kebabs to the next level? Take my advice and marinate the chicken chunks in a mix of olive oil and herbs. You could also add some yogurt and lemon juice, as well as some salt.

Adding salt to the marinade will help the chicken hold on to moisture. The acid from yogurt and/or lemon juice will tenderize the meat. If you add any of those acidic ingredients, make sure to marinate the meat for no longer than 2 hours or the chicken will start to get mealy.

Tips for making this chicken kebabs recipe:

  •  Soak the skewers: If using bamboo or wooden skewers, place them in water to soak while you prepare the meat.
  • This recipe yields 6 skewers.
  • Cut the chicken breasts into 1 1/2 inch chunks making sure they are equal in size.
  •  Want to add some fresh herbs? Always a good idea! Think fresh thyme, oregano, basil, rosemary. Dill can also be added fresh instead of dried.
  •  Too cold to grill? Simply put the chicken pieces on a sheet pan under the broiler, – works out great.

Serve them as is, or with a simple cucumber yogurt tzatziki dipping sauce or a Fermented Dill Cucumber Sauce. So good!
