  • 1.5 lbs (about 700g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano (or 1 teaspoon dried oregano)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme (or 1 teaspoon dried thyme)
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes


  1. Marinate the Chicken: In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, chopped parsley, oregano, thyme, smoked paprika, cumin, coriander, salt, and black pepper. Add the chicken cubes to the marinade, tossing well to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or ideally overnight, to allow the flavors to meld.

  2. Preheat the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. If you're using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes beforehand to prevent them from burning on the grill.

  3. Skewer the Chicken: Thread the marinated chicken cubes onto the soaked skewers, leaving a little space between each piece.

  4. Grill the Skewers: Place the chicken skewers on the preheated grill. Cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is cooked through and nicely charred on the outside. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165°F (75°C).

  5. Serve: Once the chicken skewers are cooked, remove them from the grill and transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with additional chopped parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice, if desired. Serve hot alongside your favorite Mediterranean-inspired sides, such as tabbouleh, hummus, grilled vegetables, or a Greek salad.

  6. Enjoy: Dive into the succulent, flavorful goodness of these Mediterranean-style BBQ chicken skewers, savoring each tender bite infused with the essence of herbs and spices.

These BBQ chicken skewers are perfect for grilling outdoors during warm weather or indoors using a grill pan. They're sure to be a hit at your next barbecue or gathering, bringing a taste of the Mediterranean to your table. Bon appétit!
