Luscious Mediterranean Chicken Skewers

Ingredients for Mediterranean Chicken Skewers:

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Wooden or metal skewers


  1. Begin by soaking your wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent them from burning on the grill. If you are using metal skewers, you can skip this step.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, dried oregano, ground cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper to create the marinade.
  3. Place the chicken pieces in the marinade and toss to ensure they are well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to 2 hours to allow the flavors to infuse the chicken.
  4. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat or set your oven to broil if you plan to cook the skewers indoors.
  5. Thread the marinated chicken pieces onto the skewers, alternating with the red and yellow bell pepper and red onion pieces.
  6. Grill the skewers on the preheated grill or broil in the oven, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are slightly charred, about 10-15 minutes.
  7. Once done, remove the skewers from the grill or oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
