Chicken Shwarma Skewers


We all know that yogurt has many magical qualities. One of those qualities is tenderizing meat. It’s sort of a mystery how, but the thought is that perhaps it’s the calcium interacting with the protein of the meat. Regardless of how it happens, it’s tasty and makes some succulent chicken. It’s sure to be your go-to marinade.

With the return of hot temps a week ago, I thought that yogurt, chicken, and a grill was just the ticket for dinner. 

Here’s what you’ll need – 

4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2” cubes

1 cup 2% Fage

Juice from 1 lemon

1 tbsp. Shwarma seasoning

2 tbsp. minced fresh cilantro

1 tsp. kosher salt

3 cloves of garlic, minced


Mix all of the ingredients together in a large storage bag. Add the chicken cubes to the bag and let marinate, in the refrigerator, for at least an hour.


Thread the chicken cubes onto skewers and sprinkle some salt over the chicken.

Put your grill on high and oil the grates.

Place the skewers on the oiled grates until the chicken is no longer pink.


Eat well,
