Equipment

  • Skewers
  • Basting Brush
  • Heat Resistant Gloves
  • Portable Grill (optional)

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into 1” pieces
  • 1 small zucchini sliced into 1/4” moons
  • 1 red onion chopped
  • 14 cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup prepared tzatziki store-bought or recipe as follows

Tzatziki Sauce

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cucumber seeds removed & chopped fine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, garlic powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Set aside for 30 minutes (up to 2 hours) to marinate, tossing occasionally.
  • To make the tzatziki (can be made ahead):
  • Remove excess moisture from the chopped cucumber by blotting with a towel. Place the cucumber, Greek yogurt, mint, garlic, and salt in a small bowl and mix to combine.
  • Cover & store in your cooler if making ahead of time.
  • Prepare a grill or campfire for grilling.
  • Thread the chicken and vegetables onto skewers.
  • Once the grill is ready, place the skewers on the grill grate and grill, turning every few minutes so all sides cook evenly. The chicken will need to cook 3-5 minutes per side, and the veggies will need roughly 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove skewers. Serve with tzatziki for dipping. Enjoy!
