Grilled Chicken, Red Onion, and Mint Kebabs

Total Time

The colorful kebabs feature the popular Greek flavors of mint and oregano. Serve them over rice or with pita bread and a greek salad. The chicken needs to marinate for 30 minutes.


  1. Mix chicken, 2 tablespoons oil, garlic, mint, oregano, salt, and pepper in medium bowl. Let marinate 30 minutes. Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons oil and lemon juice in small bowl to blend.
  2. Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Pull off large mint leaves from stems. Alternate chicken, onion, and mint leaves on skewers; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until chicken is just cooked through, turning and basting occasionally with oil-lemon mixture, about 9 minutes. Serve Greek Salad alongside.

This is very good. I tried it when I saw it posted on Epicurious, and used fresh mint in the marinade instead of dried. My husband and I had it for dinner with a delicious Greek salad, Trader Joe's Meditteranean hummus and whole wheat pitas and it was amazing!

This is really good. I used all fresh mint and white sweet onions as they were what I had on hand. I would make this again.

So good! I also did a stove-top version, and just sauteed the onions and stir-fried the marinated chicken pieces. I thought I wanted it more lemon-y so substituted a tbsp. lemon juice for one of the 1st 2 tbsps olive oil, but the lemon flavor was just a bit much so I think I won't do that next time. The mint is the star of the show here; just the right amount. This was wonderful with tabouli salad!
