This Father's Day, elevate your celebration with our irresistible Grilled Mediterranean Chicken Skewers!

Makes: 4 Servings | Preparation Time: 15 Minutes

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup La Panza extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Red onion, cut into chunks
  • Bell peppers, cut into chunks
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper to create the marinade.
  2. Place the chicken cubes in a resealable plastic bag or shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure it's well coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, preferably longer for more flavor.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  4. While the grill is heating, prepare your skewers. Thread the marinated chicken pieces onto the soaked wooden skewers, alternating with cherry tomatoes, red onion chunks, and bell pepper pieces.
  5. Brush the skewers lightly with additional olive oil to prevent sticking on the grill.
  6. Grill the skewers for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and has nice grill marks.
  7. Serve the grilled Mediterranean chicken skewers hot off the grill, garnished with fresh herbs like parsley or basil if desired.

This recipe combines the richness of olive oil with the bright flavors of lemon and Mediterranean herbs, making it the perfect dish for Father's Day!
