  • 2 lemons juiced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3-4 garlic cloves crushed
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs trimmed of large fatty deposits and cubed


  • In a large ziploc bag, combine lemon juice, olive oil, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and garlic. Give it a shake to combine and add in cubed chicken thighs. Seal and refrigerate to marinade 1 to 4 hours.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Make sure it is clean and well oiled so the chicken doesn't stick.
  • Thread the chicken cubes on metal skewers, 3 to 4 cubes per skewer leaving a little space between each piece. If using wooden skewers, be sure to pre-soak them in water for a half hour so they don't catch fire.
  • Grill chicken for 3 to 5 minutes. Rotate and grill another 3 to 5 minutes until chicken reaches 165 degrees. Actual cooking time will depend on thickness of chicken and temperature of grill. Serve hot.
