Loaded with veggies and lots of colour, these Greek chicken bebabs with Tzatziki are the perfect summer meal. For the best results, allow the chicken to marinate for several hours before adding it to the grill.
Begin by preparing the kebabs. In a large bowl, add the olive oil, yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper, and whisk well to combine.
Add the cubed chicken to the bowl, toss in the marinade until it is well coated, and then set aside for at least 10 minutes. If time permits, it is best to do this step ahead of time to allow the chicken to marinate overnight or for several hours for the best results.
While the chicken is marinating, prepare the tzatziki. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, grated cucumber, grated garlic, parsley, dill and lemon juice, stir to combine and set aside.
Once the chicken has finished marinating, prepare the kebabs. (If using wooden skewers, prepare them by soaking in water for 10 minutes. If using metal skewers, no prep is necessary.) Thread the chicken onto the skewers alternating between chicken and vegetables until all of the chicken has been used.
Heat a BBQ or grill to medium-high heat, place the skewers on the grill, and cook for 5-7 minutes per side until grill marks appear and the chicken is cooked through.
Once cooked, remove kebabs from the grill, allow to cool 2-3 minutes, and serve with fresh tzatziki.
