Greek Lemon Chicken Skewers





My love for lemon is real. It's possibly the best and most versatile flavor addition to food. It wasn't until I moved away from California that I realized just how valuable lemons are. They are SO plentiful in California, and so expensive in Las Vegas! 

Lately I've been aiming to make more recipes that can be prepped in advance and this definitely does that. It is delicious and pairs amazing with Tzaziki sauce. Enjoy!

Greek Lemon Chicken Skewers
Yield: 2-4 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Marinate Time: 45 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 lbs. chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon coriander
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients, then add in the cubed chicken and toss to coat. Marinate for at least 45 minutes.

Heat grill to medium high heat.

Thread the chicken onto metal or wooden skewers. (Be sure to soak wooden skewers for 30 minutes.)

Oil the grates of the grill and place skewers on them. Grill the chicken for 3-4 minutes then flip it over and grill for another 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

Enjoy!
