Greek Chicken Kabobs are one of my most popular dishes in this house!
My family and I are addicted to Greek food, yes addicted. I can’t go a week without cooking something Greek and it’s always Greek Chicken or Spanakopita, which is a Greek Spinach Pie.
My family also love kabobs, which is why I always try to turn my chicken and beef dishes into kabobs.
BTW, I will make Spanakopita soon for the site.
My Greek Chicken Kabobs is really a simple, but flavorful recipe. I take extra virgin olive oil, plain Greek yogurt, loads of garlic, dried oregano, and a little other spices
Mix all these ingredients together in a bowl and marinate for about 2 hours or overnight if you can wait that long.
Next, while the chicken kabobs are marinating, let’s prepare the feta rice.
I turn my rice into a vibrant yellow color with the use of turmeric. I also use broth to cook the rice in. Broth is a way of flavoring rice up without added fat.
This rice is very flavorful and the feta cheese kicks it up! You could also substitute parmigiano reggiano cheese if you don’t like feta cheese.
The rice is cooked, and the chicken kabobs have been grilled for about 7-8 minutes per side. If you don’t have a grill then you could easily bake the chicken at 375 degrees until the chicken is cooked to 165 degrees and the chicken juices run clear.
Finally, serve the Greek Chicken Kabobs with loads of warm naan or pita bread and enjoy! Don’t forget, you need to dip the chicken kabobs in the tzatziki sauce.
Often, I just take the tzatziki sauce, spread it on the warm naan bread, top it with the chicken and eat it like a sandwich.
