Real good, DH loved as well and I have made this a number of times. I havent used oregano yet because I have never had any on hand but it works beautifully without. The fresh mint is a nice flavor for the chicken along with the lemon. I added red, yellow or orange sweet peppers to the skewers and sometimes a couple cocktail tomatoes cut in half, I have used regular cooking onion in replacement of the red onion and mushrooms too. I like to serve this with Easy Garlic Rice or Spanakoryzo (Spinach and Rice). Note from a mishap: DO NOT marinate more than said amount of time or the chicken may become too soft and really ruins the result. I will definitely keep making this with variations. It is one of my favorite recipes on Zaar.
OMG, this was so good! I used dried greek oregano and fresh mint and it turned out perfect. The rice I served it with was Persian-Style Basmati Rice Pilaf. THANKS!
This is great! I followed the recipe exactly, using the dried herbs, and the chicken turned out very moist and had just the perfect amount of flavor! Thanks!
