Red wine vinegar, lemon zest, and oregano are a delicious Greek-inspired departure from the typical Italian or teriyaki-flavored versions

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into ½-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 10 grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion, cut into 10 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


In a medium bowl, combine chicken with olive oil, vinegar, lemon zest, oregano, and garlic powder and toss to combine. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400° F. Take one small 5-inch skewer and thread each with 3 pieces of marinated chicken, one tomato and one onion wedge. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 10 kabobs. Transfer to a greased sheet pan and season with salt and pepper. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until cooked through. Broil on high for a few minutes to brown if desired. Serve warm.

MAKE IT A MEAL: Instead of skewering the chicken, simply bake it in the oven. Fill 2 pitas with cooked chicken and some chopped romaine lettuce. Top with halved tomatoes and thinly sliced red onion. Drizzle with tahini to serve.
