Ingredients 📖

1 3/4 – 2 lbs bonless skinless chicken breasts, diced into 1 1/4-inch cubes
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided, plus more for grill
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp ground coriander
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 large red bell peppers, diced into 1 1/4-inch pieces
3 small zucchini (nearly 1 lb), sliced into rounds slightly under 1/2-inch thick
1 large red onion, diced into 1 1/4-inch wedges
Tzatziki
1 medium cucumber (about 8 oz), peeled, seeded and chopped into chunks*
1 tsp salt, plus more to taste
2 (5.3 oz) containers plain Greek yogurt (1 heaping cup)
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnishing kebabs
1 Tbsp chopped fresh dill (or 1 tsp dried)
Freshly ground black pepper

For the kebabs:

Seal bag and refrigerate 45 minutes to 2 hours (no longer than 2 hours or the chicken will start to get mealy because of the acidic ingredients). If using wooden skewers soak them in water for 30 minutes.
Drizzle and toss veggies with 2 Tbsp of the olive oil (I just left them on the cutting board and tossed them) and season lightly with salt.
Preheat a grill over medium-high heat. Thread a red bell pepper, red onion, zucchini, 2 chicken pieces on to skewer and repeat twice. Brush grill lightly with olive oil, place skewers on grill and grill until chicken registers 165 degrees in center, about 7 – 9 minutes, rotating once halfway through cooking. Garnish with parsley, serve warm with Tzatziki sauce.
For the Tzatziki:
Place diced cucumber in a mesh strainer or colander and sprinkle with salt, toss to evenly co
