Greek Chicken Kabobs with Cucumber Sauce | Life, Love, and Good Food

Greek Chicken Kabobs with Cucumber Sauce is on my Top 10 weeknight grilling recipe list. (Maybe I don’t actually have a list yet, but sounds like a good idea for a future blog post!).

I discovered this recipe a while back on the My Baking Addiction blog (Jamie is one of my favorite bloggers) and since then it has made a regular appearance on our dinner menu. 

I love Greek flavors and I love making kabobs because they make a simple meal seem fancy, don’t you agree? That makes this recipe a win-win for me!

The marinade is a combination of herbs and spices mixed with fresh lemon juice, olive oil, and a little dijon mustard. I toss the chicken and veggies in a ziplock bag and pour in the marinade before leaving for work which means dinner prep only takes minutes when I get home.

While the grill (or grill pan) is heating up, I skewer the chicken and veggies and then everything is ready to cook. There’s no need to oil the grates because of the olive oil in the marinade.

These skewers only need to cook about 10 minutes. I usually serve the skewers with pita bread or naan with fresh cucumber sauce for dipping and don’t bother with any other sides. This is really a quick, easy, healthy, and delicious meal. Enjoy!
