Grilled Chicken Skewers

These are tasty, tender pieces of chicken that have been marinated for a few hours and then grilled.  They go well with a side serving of quinoa and my Greek-style coleslaw.




  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbs ground paprika
  • 2 tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt flakes
  • 1/3 cup oregano leaves
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 kilogram chicken thigh fillets, cut into 3cm pieces


  1. Combine garlic, paprika, vinegar, zest, juice, oil and sea salt flakes in a large bowl. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat a barbecue grill or chargrill pan over medium-high heat. Thread chicken evenly onto 8 skewers. Cook skewers for 8-10 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and serve with a salad.
