A simple greek dish that is tasty, healthy and easy. Goes well with pita bread, brushed with melted butter and wrapped in foil and warmed in the oven, or with couscous and a salad.
Ingredients – Serves 2
• 2 chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
• 2 teaspoons oregano (dried is fine)
• 2 cloves fresh garlic (crushed)
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon pepper
• 1 lemon, juice of
• olive oil, same amount to match the lemon juice
If you are going to use wooden skewers, soak them for 30 minutes.
Place the chicken in a bowl and add oregano, garlic, salt and pepper and a splash of lemon juice (about 2 tsp).
Toss to coat.
Marinate in fridge for at least 1 hour -the longer the better - I usually prepare it 24 hours before I want to eat it.
Skewer the chicken onto wooden or metal skewers.
Grill (under a hot grill or on a George Foreman grill) the chicken skewers for 10-15 mins until thoroughly cooked through.
Add an equal amount of olive oil to the remaining lemon juice.
Mix the oil and lemon mixture until "creamy" and drizzle over the hot chicken - do this as soon as they come off the grill.
