Greek Chicken Kabobs with Tzatziki Sauce {skinny recipe}

I’m looking forward to lots and lots of heathly meals on the grill now that the warmer weather has FINALLY made it’s way up the East coast!  One of my favorite things to make on the grill is shish-kabobs. They are simple, fresh and healthy, which is an all around win in my book!  Like any good dish, it’s always fun experiment with different variations.  I LOVE the fresh flavors in classic Greek dishes, so I decided to to use that as inspiration to make this healthy Greek Chicken Kabob recipe recently.  This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Greek Chicken Skewers with Tzatziki Sauce {recipe}

INGREDIENTS:

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup water

4 cloves minced garlic

juice of one lemon

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp cracked black pepper

1/2 tsp salt

1 lb boneless/skinless chicken breast diced into 1″ squares

3/4 cup grape tomatoes, cut in halves

one onion, cut into 1″ pieces

one pepper, cut into 1″ pieces ( I used a yellow pepper)

METHOD:

Whisk olive oil, vinegar, water, garlic, lemon, oregano, salt & pepper together in a bowl.  Pour marinade over raw, diced chicken and refridgerate overnight (marinating overnight will give best flavor, but as little as an hour is okay if you’re short on time!)

Once chicken has marinated, you can go ahead and build your skewers.  Your tomatoes, onion and pepper should be sliced and set aside.  Simple layer chicken, then mixed vegetables in between.  After skewers are built, simple throw them on the grill at a medium-high heat for approx. 15 minutes.  Keep a good eye on them, and rotate skewers as needed.

While the skewers are cooking you can prepare the Easy Tzatziki Sauce recipe!  Serve chicken kabobs with tzatziki dipping sauce and a side of pita bread for a healthy, balanced meal!
