From “ A Spicy Perspective” online recipe conversation. What a delicious way to use some of those lemons weighing down the tree! It was a big hit with my writing group’s hungry Board members!
Place 8-10 wooden skewers in a shallow pan of water to soak before grilling. Soak 30 minutes.
Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces and place in a large bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice from one lemon. Add the olive oil, garlic, oregano, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper. Toss and let the chicken marinade for 20-30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a second bowl mix the ingredients for the Tzatziki sauce. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir well, then put in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Pre-heat the grill to medium heat. Slice the remaining lemons into thin rounds. Slide 7-8 pieces of chicken onto each skewer with a folded lemon slice in between every 2 to 3 chunks. Once all the skewers are ready, grill them for 5 minutes per side, 10 minutes total. Be careful that the wooden skewers are not resting directly on the grill.
Break open one chicken chunk to test for doneness.
Serve the chicken and the tzatziki sauce for dipping.
