Grilled chicken is, probably, one of the oldest chicken recipes all over the world. Roasting meat pieces on skewers is a very natural way to cook meat, so it’s not surprising at all that this method appeared when the hominids began to prepare food on fire.
Even today, making skewers remained a pleasure for the modern man! I think there are very few people who don’t like fried meat directly on the charcoal.
Chicken skewers, chicken kebabs, or chicken kabobs, as they are named in some parts of the world, are at the top of preferences when it comes to this kind of food. As a result, there are available lots of marinade recipes for chicken.
For sure, each one of us has a preferred chicken kebab recipe. To be honest, I like any type of chicken skewer or kabob, generally speaking, but Greek kabobs have a special place in my top of preferences.
However, the recipe that I present in this video is very suitable for the torrid summer days. I consider this because chicken meat is easier to digest when is very warm, the kebabs are ready very quickly and everything can be done outdoors.
Chicken skewers can be served plain, maybe just along with a fresh vegetable salad. Of course, there are different side dishes that fit very well with fried chicken. Some of them are mashed potatoes, cold potato salad, fries, cold green bean salad, and others.
Enjoy the Greek marinated chicken skewers!
Yes, you can make marinated chicken skewers with chicken thighs after you remove the skin and bones and cube them into smaller pieces.
