Greek chicken kabobs are just as delicious as they look!

Marinated in a light and lemony souvlaki-inspired marinade, chicken is threaded onto skewers with a rainbow of veggies and grilled until tender and juicy.

These chicken kabobs are the perfect make-ahead, feel-good kind of meal.

Ingredients for Chicken Kabobs

Marinade: Fresh lemon, garlic, and a sprinkle of seasonings are all you need. I add oregano, but you can also use a bit of your fave Greek seasoning.

Chicken: These kabobs are made with boneless skinless chicken breasts. Skinless chicken thighs also work well in this recipe.

Vegetables: Dive into the color wheel; these kabobs are vibrant with bell peppers, zucchini, and red onion.

How to Make Greek Chicken Kabobs

  1. Marinate: Prepare the marinade (recipe below) and marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Skewer: Thread chicken and vegetables on skewers
  3. Grill: Grill over medium-high heat until the chicken reaches 165°F.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve them with tzatziki sauce (cucumber & Greek yogurt dip).
  • For a carby side dish, try Lemon Roasted Potatoes, rice, couscous, or lemon orzo.
  • For a fresh side dish, serve with sliced tomatoes drizzled with oil and red wine vinegar and sprinkled with feta cheese.
  • These kabobs pair well with Greek salad.

  1. This is absolutely delicious! Marinated chicken about 2 hrs…tender and flavorful! What do you think of some pineapple chunks on a couple of these skewers with the chicken?
    Made last time with the zucchini and peppers.
