Hey, Foodies! Happy Friday!
I love Greek food! The spices, the garlic, the flavors . . . there’s nothing I don’t like about it! And since the Mediterranean diet is considered one of the healthiest, there’s no guilt about it – just pleasure!
This recipe is super easy and big on flavor! I simply marinate the chicken overnight, and in return I’m rewarded with the most tender, tasty kabobs a girl could want!
Score major flavor points by serving this with large quantities of garlic sauce! For that, I don’t have my own recipe, I use the one found here.
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 red onion
1/4 lemon juice (1 large lemon)
2 tbsp. olive oil
8 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. clove
2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. garlic salt
Cut chicken into 1-2″ cubes. Mix all ingredients together. Add chicken, coating well, and place in refrigerator overnight. A large, gallon sized plastic bag works great.
The next day, remove from the refrigerator and place on skewers alternating with pieces of red onion. (I skewer them over the sink to help contain the mess!)
Grill until cooked thoroughly. That’s it!
I eat mine with copious amounts of garlic sauce because Garlic sauce is one of my favorite things, but these kabobs pack plenty of their own flavor. Goes great with zucchini sautéed with similar spices and couscous.
If you try it, please let me know if you like it!
