This is a nice change from the ordinary grilled chicken. This is excellent served with pita bread, a garlicky tzatziki, and a Greek salad. Lamb can be substituted for the chicken, and many variations on vegetables can be used.

Directions

  • Soak wooden skewers in water for about 30 minutes before use.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat; lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off excess liquid. Discard the remaining marinade. Alternately thread pieces of the marinated chicken with pieces of bell pepper, onion, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms onto the skewers.

  • Cook the skewers on the preheated grill, turning frequently until nicely browned on all sides, and the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes.

I just wrote thyme in my original post not dried I always use fresh.... If you are using dried make sure it is good quality thyme or you will end up with it leaving a bitter taste in your mouth! If you don't like thyme just leave it out or try marjoram or savory instead....the cumin in it gives it that something extra.... I originally got this recipe from a friend who lives in the Greek Islands...For some reason the recipe only says 1/4 cup olive oil I use 1/2 a cup or even amounts of oil to lemon and vinegar (my friend just uses lemon juice in the original recipe no vinegar she uses 2 cups of olive oil to 1 cup of fresh lemon juice) Read More

I'll try to be as tactful as I can. The marinating time is too long. This affected the texture of it to the point that we found it inedible. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding fresh rosemary because I like it. It didn't help. The only flavor that came through was the acid. Even after it was grilled. I won't be making this ever again. Read More

Awesome! My new favorite Greek recipe for summer. I used mushroom zucchini onion and red pepper. The tomatoes I stuffed with a blend of feta roasted garlic and basil and served as an appatizer. I also de-kabobed them and sprinkled with feta everything better with cheese! the flavors of the marinade are so amazing they should be brushed on everything. Read More

Excellent! Light refreshing flavors. I only had time to marinate for about an hour but the flavor was still great. I added zucchini chunks to the kebabs (garden is overflowing with them!). Served over top of whole wheat pasta. Thanks!:) Read More

This recipe is fantastic I used fresh herbs and it turned out delicious I think it might even compete with my dad's bbq which is a big deal. To the reviewer who thought this made it inedible the only explanation would be either using bad ingredients or doing it wrong but honestly it's hard to mess this one up. You can change it up with any type of vinegar and use fresh hand squeezed lemon. I definitely will be making this one again. Read More
