Marinate

Stir in the olive oil and lemon juice, add the oregano, salt, and pepper, then place the chicken cubes into the dish and mix well. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and let marinate for several hours, or overnight, in the refrigerator.

Broil or grill outdoors

  1. Prepare the vegetables : Seed the peppers, then cut them into 2 cm squares; Cut the onion into small segments; Leave the mushrooms whole, if similar in size as the rest, otherwise, cut them in half. Alternate the meat and vegetable pieces onto metal skewers. Thread the tomatoes onto separate skewers.
  2. Cook the kebabs and tomatoes on an oiled hot grill or under the broiler, turning them occasionally and basting with oil. The tomatoes will be ready in about 5 min, the kebabs in about 10 min.

This was delicious! And, we used pitas and tzaziki sauce, which was a great addition. Will definitely be making this again.
