Greek Chicken Kabobs

Something fresh and delicious is in order for Sunday night dinner.  Yesterday I went with an easy standby – Greek chicken kabobs and a simple Greek plate to go with it.  Yum o! 

To start, I did a quick marinade. 

I mixed:

  • 1 pound of chicken
  • 1 T of Olive oil
  • 1 1/2 t of Oregano
  • Salt and Pepper
I set that aside for about an hour and then I strung the chicken on to bamboo skewers.  I placed the skewers on the grill with a cut lemon.  
I could get all fancy here and talk about how grilling the lemon gives it a smoky flavor or how the citrus oils release while the chicken is cooking to give everything a lemony flavor, but I’ll leave all that to your imagination.  Suffice it to say, if you haven’t grill lemons before, give it a shot.
When you pull the kabobs off the grill, pick up and squeeze out the lemons on the kabobs.

Now just grill up a bit of pita bread, throw down a Greek salad and some hummus and you’ve got dinner.
