Greek Chicken Skewers

Well she did it.  Courtney scored three goals for her varsity soccer team last week. (Maybe you heard the excessive cheering coming from our house.)

Proud momma moments watching this girl do her thing on the soccer field.  

Last week we had 3 soccer games and 3 baseball games in 4 days - needless to say, we only ate dinner at home 1 night all week.  We had dinner at the field most days which sounds like a complaint but to be perfectly honest - I am sad that their seasons are over.  I am going to miss cheering on my favorite teams but I'm not going to miss packing our dinner every night.

I packed these Greek Chicken skewers along with some orzo salad to take to one of the soccer games last week.  In case you missed the orzo salad recipe that I posted on the blog yesterday, you need to check it out.  It is amazing.

The perfect compliment to the orzo salad - Greek Chicken Skewers from Taste of Home magazine.  These are super easy and really yummy.  As an added bonus - they make great picnic food for the ballpark too.

Greek Chicken Skewers
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoongrated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound boneless chicken, cut into strips

Combine yogurt, lemon juice, oil, sage, oregano, salt, zest, onion powder and pepper.

Add chicken strips.  Cover and refrigerate 10 minutes or up to 8 hours.

Remove chicken and thread onto skewers.

Place on a hot grill and grill until internal temperature reaches 165.

 Remove from heat, tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes.

Super yummy summertime and easy meal to serve on a warm spring (or summer) day.
