One of my favorite meals of all time are grilled chicken shish kabobs. They are healthy and delicious, and I think I could eat them every day of the week and they would never get old.
As a teenager I would help make these for my family all the time and grill them in the backyard. Onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, and tomoatoes all complement the delicious grilled chicken flavor, and when served on a bed of cous cous, it’s pure heaven.
I’d love to share the yuminess with you, but since I can’t reach through the screen and give you a bite, I figure that sharing the recipe with you is the next best thing.
Grilled Greek Chicken Shish Kabobs:
- 4 Chicken breasts, cut into 1″ pieces
- 2 cups Greek yogurt
- 5 Garlic cloves, minced
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tsp. oregano
- Salt and pepper
- Red onion, sliced into 1″ pieces
- Bell peppers, sliced into 1″ pieces
- Grape tomatoes
Combine the Greek yogurt, garlic, lemon, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.
Place the chicken pieces in a gallon-size plastic bag, and pour the yogurt marinade over the top. Mix well, and place in the refrigerator to marinate. The longer you marinate, the better. Overnight is best, but all day, or even a few hours, is great too.
Once the chicken has marinated, add chicken to the metal skewers, and place on a baking sheet covered with Reynolds non-stick foil. I have some fresh rosemary in the yard, so I sprinkled some on the chicken just before grilling for some extra flavor.
You can combine the vegetables and the chicken together on the skewers or put them on separate skewers.
Place another piece of Reynolds non-stick foil on the grill, and then heat the grill to high. I’ve lost my chicken chunks and veggies one too many times to a sticky hot grill, so using the non-stick foil on the grill is one of my favorite tips for keeping the grill clean and my veggies from becoming charred bits.
Once the grill is hot, place the shish kabobs on the foil, close the lid, and let cook.
Check frequently, and turn as each side cooks, until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and internal juices run clear.
You’ll love how easy it is to clean up your grill since you used foil. Once the grill has been turned off and is completely cooled, simply remove the foil from the grill, and you’re done! If your grill grates are dirty, you can crumble the foil in a ball, and scrub it along the grill grates to clean them.
I like to eat my chicken and veggie shish kabobs with cous cous and a green salad. Yum!
