Every foodie knows how much a little zest can elevate a simple recipe. Well-seasoned and served on skewers, these grilled lemon chicken sticks will be the irresistible element you need, whether it be as a party snack or part of your dinner spread. To spice it up, you can even add a dip of your choice!
- ½ cup (125 ml) olive oil
- ½ cup (125 ml) lemon juice
- 1.5 kg chicken thigh fillets
- 2 tsps rigani (or dried oregano)
- 2 tsps coarse cooking salt (kosher salt)
- 1 tsp ground white pepper
- 1 medium lemon (140 g)
- 1 tbsp fresh oregano leaves
Blend or process oil and juice until mixture is thick and creamy.
Combine chicken, rigani, salt, pepper and half the lemon mixture in medium bowl. Thread chicken onto eight oiled metal skewers.
Cook skewers on heated oiled barbecue (or grill or grill plate), brushing frequently with remaining lemon mixture until cooked through.
Serve skewers, sprinkled with oregano and lemon wedges.
TIP Rigani is dried Greek oregano, sold in bunches in Greek, Portuguese and Italian stores. You can also use dried oregano instead for these fragrant grilled lemon chicken skewers.
