greek style kabobs

we were looking for a quick meal for a hot summer day, and decided to put together some basic greek ingredients together for an easy marinade. 

greek style chicken kabobs
4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1.5 inch pieces
1 cup olive oil (depending on preference- put in enough to cover the chicken) 
juice of one lemon
1 tbsp oregano
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tbsp pepper
1 tsp salt
vegetables to grill- i used 1 onion and 1 green bell pepper, cut into cubes

mix the olive oil, lemon juice, and seasonings in a medium bowl. add chicken cubes and let marinate. (we put this together quickly and 10 minutes was great- though an hour will add more flavor). cut the veggies while the chicken marinates. 

heat the grill and brush with a little bit of oil to prevent sticking. alternate threading the veggies and chicken on the skewers. cook about 7 minutes on each side, until cooked through. you can also broil these, a few minutes on each side! enjoy!!
