I have been meaning to share this recipe with you guys ALL SUMMER! We have had these chicken skewers on repeat in our apartment. I almost always pick some chicken up during my weekly grocery shop and they are so simple to throw together. I can have dinner ready in under an hour with the marinade and cooking time included!
I love this recipe because while it is super simple and packs major fresh flavor, they are also mega fun party food! Americans love to eat things off of a stick! Ha! Next time your at a lost for a pack of chicken, give this easy greek recipe a try. Also, DON'T skip the tzatziki sauce! It's my favorite part!
