Greek kabobs. Fantastic flavor for chicken. Marinade can also be used for pork.

Directions

  1. Combine 1/4 cup olive oil, lemon juice, 2 cloves minced garlic, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large resealable bag. Add chicken, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  2. Mix yogurt, cucumber, 1 tablespoon olive oil, vinegar, 1 clove minced garlic, and 1 pinch salt together in a bowl. Refrigerate tzatziki sauce for flavors to blend, 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Soak wooden skewers in a bowl of water for about 15 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade and thread onto the soaked skewers. Discard unused marinade.
  5. Cook the skewers on the preheated grill, turning frequently until nicely browned on all sides and chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 8 minutes per side. Serve with tzatziki sauce.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This was very, very good, but I did make some changes. I prepared the marinade exactly as written, but I marinated the chicken pieces for about 5 hours, which was perfect. The tzatziki sauce I had to alter: I substituted lemon juice for the vinegar and added a teaspoon of dried dill weed. I served this as sandwiches, with pita warmed on the grill, sliced red onion and tomatoes. Completely yummy!

This recipe was amazing! We rarely please all three of our picky children with any recipe, but this one was loved by all. We marinated and grilled not only chicken, but pork, salmon, zucchini and yellow squash. Everything was absolutely yummy in every way. The addition of the tzatziki sauce was like the icing on the cake. We made a slight change of the addition of a touch of fresh mint in the tzatziki, and it was amazing. I'm a person who likes to know why you do what you do in recipes sometimes. My husband informed me that letting the tzatziki sauce chill for at least an hour after making helps the vinegar in the sauce break down the other ingredients so that they can combine. I'm glad to know this, because I will never rush a tzatziki again. The sauce was so simple and delicious, as was the marinate. Thanks so much for sharing!!!!

I put in about three cloves of garlic and like to use malt vinegar rather than white vinegar and about table spoon. It gives it that extra kick.
