Mediterranean Chicken Kebabs: Bites of chicken marinated in warm spices, threaded on skewers with colorful peppers and onions and grilled to perfection!

A flavorful recipe that’s great for an outdoor summer grill or indoor winter dinner.


No intentions of making these kebabs existed even a 2 days ago (I usually plan recipes or have something on my list that I just really want to make).


I found some metal skewers I had at the back of a kitchen cabinet when I was looking for my hand mixer attachments yesterday, and that’s all the inspiration I needed.


Then came the hard part. I really wanted to go for a yogurt marinated chicken skewer recipe, but I’ve been doing quite a few of those recently, so I went for something new with Middle-Eastern flavored kabobs instead. A very good decision.
