Greek Chicken Sish Kebab

Cooking for Families

This is a delicious change from boring grilled chicken. The chicken is full of flavor and tender. This is an excellent main dish when served with pita bread, a garlicky tzatziki, and a Greek salad with olives and feta cheese. Lamb can be substituted for the chicken and add any vegetables your Nanny Family likes.

You Will Need:

¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup white vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried thyme
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
6 wooden skewers
2 large green or red bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces

What to Do:


1. Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, cumin, oregano, thyme, salt, and black pepper together in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add the chicken and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap; marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

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

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

4. 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 onto the skewers.

5. 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.
