First off, let’s talk about these kebab skewers…because I know you’re going to ask. 🙂
So. My mom is a very clever gift giver and she loves to find obscure and fun kitchen gadgets that I don’t already have. Being a food blogger means that I have a slew of kitchen gadgets and goodies and I think she enjoys the challenge of finding ones that I don’t have. For Christmas 2 years ago, I opened these flexible skewers and the delight on her face when I told her that we didn’t have these yet…she was elated!
Now, let’s talk about these kebabs.
Chicken pieces soaked in a lemon-oregano vinaigrette. Then threaded with some green olives, red onion, bell peppers and zukes. (I wasn’t originally going to include zucchini because I don’t think of those as being very ‘Greek,’ but I threw them on because we had some and because I knew the kids would eat their veggies if I served them. Include them or don’t, that’s up to you.) Then grilled to perfection. Then devoured.
That’s how these Greek Chicken kebabs work. They will rock your taste buds!
