Greek Style Chicken Kebabs

This delicious recipe is from none other than George Foreman. I have to hand it to the man; he makes a mean chicken kebab. These can be cooked on an indoor or outdoor grill.

Greek Style Chicken Kebabs
4 servings


2 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 large red onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
8 (8-inch) bamboo skewers

(Note: I didn’t have a red onion on hand, so I used a yellow one. I also added cherry tomatoes to the skewers, which are delicious when grilled.)


In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken and onion and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours. Preheat the grill to high.

Thread the chicken and onion onto the skewers, reserving the marinade in the bowl. Grill the skewers (in batches, if necessary, depending upon the size of your grill) for 2 minutes and then brush with the reserved marinade; discard any remaining marinade. Grill for about 2 minutes more, until the chicken has taken on grill marks and is cooked through. Serve immediately.
