Greek Chicken Kabobs

Okay...sharing these straight from my new BFF's...all six of the sisters from Six Sisters stuff.  (Now that was a mouthful to say).  Seriously some of the best gals you'll ever meet and some of the best food you'll ever eat!  These kabobs are the bomb and they were gone in minutes so I'm leaving them riiiiiight here so I can find them quick!  And it's great with Tzatziki Sauce!!! MMmmm!

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 8-oz plain yogurt
  • 1 cup greek vinaigrette dressing
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1" pieces
  • 2 green bell peppers, cut into 1" pieces
  1. In a large ziploc bag, place chicken, yogurt, greek dressing, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and oregano. Zip and mix with your hands. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
  2. If you are using wooden skewers, soak them water for up to 30 minutes before grilling to prevent them from burning.
  3. After meat has marinated, slide alternating pieces of meat, onion, and green pepper onto skewers. Heat grill to medium-high heat and grill for 8-10 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear.

32 ounces plain yogurt 
2 cucumber ( regular, peeled and seeded ) 
3 clove(s) garlic ( crushed ) 
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar 
1 teaspoon Lemon juice 
1/2 teaspoon dill weed ( dried ) 
to taste salt 
to taste black pepper 
to taste Olive oil 


Strain yogurt using a cheesecloth over a bowl (if you don’t have that, a strainer lined with a coffee filter will work) fora couple of hours (I let mine strain for about 6 hours) or overnight to get out as much moisture as possible (I know that this step sounds funny, but I promise that if you don't do it, your sauce will be runny and not as delicious).
Shred or grate the cucumbers and blot them with a paper towel or clean kitchen towel to get rid of as much moisture as possible.
Mix together the strained yogurt, shredded cucumbers, garlic, vinegar and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Keep in the fridge until serving (let the flavors come together for about 30 minutes before serving).
If you want, drizzle a little olive oil over the top before serving.
