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 Lemon Oregano Grilled Chicken Skewers 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!
