|Grilled Chicken Skewers|
I like chicken, although I don't eat it very often, but when I do, this os one of my favorite ways to cook it - on a stick. I do prefer making small skewers, with just 4-5 small pieces of meat on each one. This way they look cuter and are also great for a party platter. I grill them on my Weber gas grill, but they can also be baked in the oven.
This recipe can be done with other kinds of meat like pork or beef.
2 chicken breasts cut into cubes
8 small wooden skewers soaked in water
juice from 1 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp oregano
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
3 cloves garlic - chopped
1/2 tsp dried parsley
- Combine all ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl and add meat. Make sure all pieces are evenly covered with the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for at least 1 hour. For best results refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
- Preheat grill to 400 F (medium-high heat ) and lightly oil the grate.
- Thread chicken on skewers and grill for 5 minutes per side, or until done.
I like mine with yogurt dipping sauce and fresh tomato-cucumber salad.
Here is what you need to make the yogurt sauce:
1 cup greek strained yogurt
1 clove garlic (finely chopped or pressed)
1 tsp lemon juice
pinch of salt
1 tsp chopped chives
