Simple, yet delicious, I never knew so few ingredients could taste this good. The lemon and oregano marinade is full of flavour and tenderises the chicken. I baked the kebabs but barbecuing would work well. The chicken kebabs are best eaten warm, but are succulent enough to be eaten cold as leftovers. Enjoy!

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 6 kebab sticks

Ingredients
2 tbsp oil
1 large lemon, finely zested and juiced
1 tbsp dried oregano
Salt and pepper
2 chicken breasts
1/2 iceberg or cos lettuce, cut
1 tomato, cut
10cm cucumber, sliced
1 red capsicum, sliced
1/8 cup kalamata olives, sliced

Method
  • Soak six kebab sticks in water, to prevent them burning while the chicken is cooking.
  • Put the lemon juice and zest, oil, oregano, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.

  • Cut the chicken into 2.5cm wide strips, diagonally at a 45 degree angle.
  • [Image3 The chicken will be thin enough to be tenderised by the marinade and thick enough to threaded onto the kebab sticks]
  • Put the chicken, lemon and oregano mixture into a bowl and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes to marinate.

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and line one baking dish with baking paper.
  • Thread the chicken on the kebab sticks and place on a baking dish. Bake the chicken for 12-15 minutes, until cooked through.
  • While the chicken is cooking, make a salad of lettuce, tomato, capsicum, cucumber and kalamata olives.
  • Take the chicken kebabs out of the oven and place on serving plates with a side of salad.
  • Serve and enjoy.
