Chicken and veggie skewers

Healthy and super delicious end of summer grilled chicken skewers with colorful veggies, marinated with garlic, lemon, oregano and chili cream marinade.

I’ve already told you guys, I love grilling, for me the grilled veggie and meat flavors are the best. So here I brought you a new skewer recipe which you can prepare before the cold weather just pops in.

This skewers were marinated with a special mix: lemon, garlic, chili or paprika sauce, oregano, olive oil, salt and pepper. Marinade the chopped chicken breast and your favorite veggies in the mix for at least 15 minutes then thread them on skewers and grill them. Leave the chicken and the veggies in the marinade in the fridge up to 24 hours.

In my opinion grilling diverse veggies and chicken are perfect without any marinade, but for the sake of variety it’s great to use some tasty marinades. In this marinade the sour lemon and the sweet chili are in a great balance + garlic is always a jolly joker. In this skewers these flavors come all together perfectly. And I almost forgot to say this easy meal perfectly fits the clean eating and primal diet as well!

I leave you here with this short post and amazing marinated chicken breast grilled on skewers recipe because we are traveling tomorrow to the sunny beaches of Spain and I have to pack! See you soon!
