Chicken Souvlaki Kabobs

Chicken Souvlaki Kabobs

Souvlaki chicken is a flavorful Mediterranean dish. The chicken is marinated overnight in a mixture of Greek yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, and Greek herbs. During summer months I love to add fresh lemon thyme from my garden to the marinade and as a garnish on the cooked kabobs.

If you don’t want to prepare kabobs, you can also marinate the chicken thighs or breasts whole, and grill or roast the whole pieces of chicken until cooked through.

We like to serve these kabobs with roasted zucchini or asparagus, and with hummus and tzatziki dips. You can also serve these kabobs with warm pita bread, if desired.

The weather here is still unusually warm, which has extended our outdoor grilling season. These Middle Eastern spiced kabobs (affectionately called “meat logs” by my children) are a flavorful departure from burgers, hot dogs, and grilled chicken. I like to serve them with tzatziki, hummus, and warm pita bread.

If you don’t want to go to the trouble to make kebabs (or it is winter and you don’t want to dig your grill out of a snowbank), this meat mixture is also great shaped as meatballs and baked, or browned in a skillet.
