July 4th is around the corner and I am sure everyone is so excited for the long weekend and your big 4th celebration. Many are probably planning a party and contemplating on the menu.
Fret not, I have just the perfect recipe for you—Greek Chicken Kebab that is sure to wow your guests. These chicken kebab is so easy to make, so juicy, moist, and with the most amazing and refreshing flavors.
I absolutely loved them. I am especially partial to the grape tomatoes that burst in your mouth.
The grape tomatoes make the chicken kebab so much more flavorful and healthy tasting while the generous use of olive oil and lemon juice seal in the chicken flavors.
The smokey grill and garlicky aroma completes the taste and makes these Greek Chicken Kebabs one of my favorite summer recipes.
I used metal skewers to make these kebabs. First of all, metal skewers are environmental friendly, and for this specific recipe, it works better as the metal skewers cook the chicken meat and grape tomatoes from the center, too.
However, you can always use wooden or bamboo skewers but make sure you soak them in water before threading the ingredients onto them.
