Lovely delicious Greek chicken kabobs made in the oven! Juicy tender pieces of marinated chicken breasts will make you fall in love with this dish. Great flavors combined in one delicious meal!
It is amazing to be able to cook kebobs in the oven when you don’t have an access to the grill (or when you do but its cold and rainy outside). The key for a fantastic flavorful chicken is …marinade!
Make sure to marinate your chicken for as long as you can wait. 🙂 I marinated chicken breast in some Mediterranean flavors overnight and oh my, how juicy and tender it was!
Do you like grocery shopping? I do! Even when i go shopping with both of my little kids, it still can be fun.
Sometimes stores have those little kiddie carts that are just their size! How amazing! My children love them, and it amazes me how creative they get when it comes to picking your own food and putting it into your own little basket or cart.

I usually prefer to buy chicken thighs for most of my recipes, but this time i went for the leaner option-chicken breast. My husband loves this kind of meat and will prefers it over anything else. Plus it’s just couple months before holiday season and i want everything to be a little bit more healthy.
By the way this is not my original recipe. I recreated the recipe I found scanning the Foster Farms DORI™ QR code – they have so many recipes to choose from!
How to make perfect chicken kebabs.
- The first and one of the most important part is to get right skewers. For the oven option i use 12 inch metal skewers, so they are fitting nicely inside my baking tray.
- Great local chicken. My town ( Tracy, California) has a fantastic variety of stores where i can purchase local delicious Foster Farms chicken, especially now with a DORI™ label. Come and meet DORI™ to scan the QR code and get great deals.
- Marinate! Don’t skip this step because you will be reworded with fantastic and flavorful chicken.
- Right sauce or dip. In this recipe I used yogurt based refreshing dip – that also can be used as a spread for pita!
More about pita. You can beautifully convert kabob leftovers to Greek-style pita toppings! Just spread the sauce on pita and add chopped kabob chicken meat on top. Don’t forget those tomatoes and some green onions on top.
