Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cucumber, grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Thread the marinated chicken pieces onto the soaked wooden skewers, ensuring even spacing.
  4. Grill the chicken skewers for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and has a beautiful char.
  5. Serve the Greek-inspired Tzatziki Chicken Skewers hot off the grill, garnished with additional dill and lemon wedges. You can also serve them with a side of pita bread and extra tzatziki sauce for dipping.
