Greek Chicken Kebabs with Tzatziki

In my view, the key to crafting a scrumptious kebab lies in infusing it with rich flavors, and a touch of Greek marinade accomplishes just that! Comprising uncomplicated ingredients, this humble marinade significantly enhances the kebabs’ taste and ensures they remain juicy and tender. The recipe calls for yogurt in both the marinade and tzatziki sauce, and you have the option of using traditional or Greek yogurt. Regardless of your choice, make sure it’s a full-fat version with minimal additives. With an overwhelming array of yogurt options in stores, not all qualify as authentic yogurt. Refer to my guide on purchasing healthy yogurt to ensure you select the right one and understand why it matters.

Ingredients

Greek Chicken Kebabs:

  • 2 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1” cubes
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1” cubes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons full-fat yogurt
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated or minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Tzatziki

  • 1/2 cup full-fat yogurt
  • 1/2 cucumber, cored and grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic, grated

Instructions

  • Start by preparing the kebabs. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Whisk the mixture thoroughly.
  • Add the cubed chicken to the bowl and coat it evenly with the marinade. Allow it to sit for at least 10 minutes. For optimal results, marinate the chicken overnight or for several hours, if time permits.
  • While the chicken is marinating, prepare the tzatziki. In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, grated cucumber, grated garlic, parsley, dill, and lemon juice. Stir until well combined and set aside.
  • Once the chicken has finished marinating, construct the kebabs. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 10 minutes before threading the chicken and vegetables alternatively. For metal skewers, no pre-soaking is required.
  • Preheat a BBQ or grill to medium-high heat. Place the skewers on the grill and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side until grill marks appear, and the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
  • After cooking, remove the kebabs from the grill, let them cool for 2-3 minutes, and serve them with fresh tzatziki.
