About the ingredients of this recipe

Marinated chicken brochettes

Chicken: Use boneless and skinless chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. Although this cut of meat does not produce perfect cubes, the meat remains tender when cooked even if the cooking times are exceeded.

Peppers and onions: Green, orange or red peppers are suitable for this recipe as are white or red onions. As they are added to the marinade along with the chicken, they become full of flavor.

Oregano: Use dried rather than fresh oregano

Lemon juice: Use fresh lemon juice rather than bottled lemon juice. It will taste even better!

Tips for making these chicken skewers

Chicken skewers on the BBQ

Marinade: At a minimum, allow 30 minutes marinating time for chicken and vegetables. A few hours marinating time is even better.

Skewer picks: I prefer to use metal picks like these, but if you use wooden ones, they need to be soaked in water beforehand to prevent them from burning during cooking.

Cooking: The BBQ is ideal for these brochettes, but they can also be cooked in the oven at 400F.

What to serve these brochettes with? Roasted potatoes, green salad, tzatziki and toasted flatbreads.
