Grilled Chicken Skewers With Homemade Tzatziki: This Easy Clean-Eating Kebab Recipe Is Sure to Make a Repeat Performance

"The truth is, we use our BBQ year round, but it just seems more fun when you can sit out on the patio and enjoy the weather while cooking!" says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®. "I really hope these skewers become a 'regular' at your house this summer." Serve the chicken skewers with the tzatziki dip, lemon wedges and your favorite fresh chopped veggies.

You'll need:


Tzatziki Dip

  • 1 cup plain whole Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup seeded, grated cucumber
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Garnishes (optional)

  • lemon wedges, chopped tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, bell peppers, red onion, etc.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Start by making your tzatziki dip. Combine all ingredients in a bowl/jar, taste test, adjust as desired, then refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 20 minutes before cooking to prevent burning. Preheat your grill to medium-high.
  3. In a medium bowl, add your chicken pieces and sprinkle with oregano, thyme, cayenne, sea salt and pepper, then drizzle with oil. Toss and stir well to coat.
  4. Thread two to three pieces of chicken onto each skewer. Arrange them on the grill with some space in between each skewer.
  5. Close the grill lid and cook for about 7 minutes until chicken is cooked through, flipping them a couple of times during cooking time.
