Greek Lemon Chicken Skewers

Cal: 182.5 - Protein: 32.6g - Fat: 3.6g - Carbs: 0.6g - Fiber: 0.1g - Sugar: 0.2g

Ingredients

  • 1.2 lbs / 550 g chicken breast, cut into even size cubes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 packed tbsp fresh oregano (using fresh herbs tastes better but you can also use 1 tsp dried oregano instead)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice (the juice of about 1 medium lemon)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • a few lemon slices, to serve

Directions

  1. Place chicken chunks in a ziplock bag or a dish, add olive oil, oregano, garlic, lemon, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly until ingredients are well combined. Seal the bag tightly or cover the dish with plastic wrap. Marinate for at least two hours or ideally overnight (the longer the better!). If using wood skewers, soak them in water for a few hours too.
  2. Prepare the skewers. Remove the big garlic and oregano bits (you don't have to remove them all, just the big ones to make sure they don't burn when you cook the skewers). Thread about 5 chicken cubes on the skewers (more or less depending on the size of your chicken chunks). You should get about 8 skewers.
  3. Preheat your grill or grill pan (I live in an apartment so I use a grill pan!). When hot, spray with a little bit of olive oil and place the skewers on the grill or in the pan. Cook on medium high for about 8 minutes, then flip the skewers and cook for another 5-6 minutes. Exact cooking time will depend on the size of the chicken cubes and your equipment. Make sure you don't overcook them because dry chicken is NOT tasty!
  4. Serve with lemon slices, tzatziki and a greek salad on the side.
