Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, chopped garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.
  2. Cut the chicken fillets into equal-sized cubes and place them in the bowl with the marinade. Mix well so that each piece of chicken is covered in the marinade. Leave to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  3. Before grilling the chicken, soak the wooden skewers in water for about 30 minutes to prevent them from burning while cooking.
  4. Preheat your grill or barbecue to medium-high heat.
  5. Thread the marinated chicken cubes onto the wooden skewers.
  6. Place the skewers on the grill and cook for about 10 minutes, turning regularly so that they are nicely browned on all sides and the chicken is cooked through.
  7. Serve hot with tzatziki and grilled vegetables.
