Greek chicken marinade
Red bell peppers, in large chunks
Red onion, in large chunks
Feta cheese, in cubes
Plain Greek yogurt
Lemon zest and juice
Salt and pepper
Preheat the barbecue to its maximum temperature.
Assemble the skewers, alternating between vegetables, feta cheese, and marinated chicken (Greek marinade).
Cook on the barbecue, turning regularly for 15 minutes or until the chicken is well cooked. Finally, reduce the heat to finish cooking the chicken.
In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, grated cucumber, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
To avoid this annoying problem, soak your wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. This way, they will surely not burn and you will make fantastic Greek skewers.
Psst! Try to remember to let them soak at the beginning of your preparation! Otherwise, wrap the ends with aluminium foil or green onions.
For an eco-friendly alternative, simply use metal skewers so you can reuse them many times. If you find it difficult to remove the food from metal skewers, simply oil them before assembling.
