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!

ingredients

directions

  • 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.
