I have gone through a bit of obsession with Greek food lately. 

I don't know if anyone else does it but I will get hooked on a certain type of food (Greek, Italian, Mexican, fish and seafood, veggies, etc.) and want it just about every day. Not the same food, but the flavors. 

It kind of drives my family a little batty at times. 

OH well, I do the cooking so I guess what I decide goes right? Although I do try to give you all a variety of recipes during the week. I don't want to make you just as crazy as my family!

I did a Greek Burger back for Father's Day and it was soooo good. 

I think that was when my little mind started cranking out ideas for recipes. 

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night with recipes flying through your head to the point that you just have to get up and start writing them down? 

Oh, maybe that is just my weird thing, but I seriously get some of my best ideas in the middle of the night! 

Last night I had to fight the urge to get up and start canning dilled green beans! 

Wacko!!

My friends, this was a meal that made them stop complaining though.

My son isn't a huge feta fan (strange but true) so I wondered if he would like this, but he did. Kevin's son eats anything I make as fast as I put it in front of him, which I haven't quite decided if it is a testament to how good my food is or just being a guy that is happy someone else is cooking for him and he doesn't have to eat fast food or microwavable meals.

I have decided to believe the first idea.

This is a great summertime meal. 

Sitting outside by the grill enjoying the tangy kabobs along with the salad? 

So good! 

You could also make these kabobs with some rice pilaf. Toss a little bit of feta in after the pilaf is cooked along with some lemon, mmmmmm heaven!!

ingredients:

For the Kabobs:

  • 1 tablespoon of dried Mediterranean oregano *see Notes
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large red onion, cut into wedges
  • 4 plum tomatoes, cored, seeded, and cut into wedges (or a container of cherry tomatoes)
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes prior to grilling.
For the Salad:
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (1/2 large lemon)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried Mediterranean oregano
  • 1 large head of Romaine lettuce, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 English cucumber, diced
  • 1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 kalamata olives, pitted and cut in half
  • 3/4 cup feta cheese crumbles

instructions


  1. In a large shallow baking dish, combine the yogurt, feta, sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and lemon zest and juice. Stir to combine well and add the chicken, turning to make sure it is completely coated. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  2. Heat your grill to medium-high heat.
  3. Remove chicken from the marinade and thread onto skewers, alternating with the onion and tomato wedges. Discard leftover marinade. 
  4. Place the kabobs on the grill and cook turning to assure all sides are cooked and the chicken is no longer pink,  approx 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. While chicken is cooking whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, red wine vinegar, and dried oregano in a small bowl. Place the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, olives, and feta in a large salad bowl. Toss with salad dressing. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Pile some salad on a plate and top with kabobs.

NOTES:

Whenever you use dried herbs, make sure to crush them with your fingers in the palm of your hand to release the oils aka the flavor.
