How to Make Mouthwatering Mediterranean Chicken Kabobs


  • 1 bottle of Mediterranean dressing from Aldi (any Greek or Mediterranean dressing will do)

  • 1-2lb Boneless chicken thighs

  • Zucchini

  • Onions, any variety will work


  1. Prepare the Marinade: Start by marinating the boneless chicken thighs in Aldi's Mediterranean dressing. This dressing is packed with herbs and spices that will infuse the chicken with delicious flavor. Place the chicken thighs in a bowl or a resealable plastic bag and pour enough Mediterranean dressing over them to fully coat. Let the chicken marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but for even better flavor, marinate it overnight.

  2. Prep the Vegetables: While the chicken is marinating, prepare the vegetables for the kabobs. Cut the zucchini into thick slices, making sure they are large enough to thread onto skewers. Similarly, slice the onions into chunks, ensuring they are also suitable for skewering.

  3. Assemble the Kabobs: Once the chicken has finished marinating, it's time to assemble the kabobs. Take wooden or metal skewers and alternate threading pieces of marinated chicken, zucchini slices, and chunks of onion onto them. This alternating pattern ensures that each kabob is packed with a variety of flavors.

  4. Grill the Kabobs: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. If you're using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes beforehand to prevent them from burning. Once the grill is hot, place the assembled kabobs on the cooking surface.

  5. Cook Until Done: Grill the kabobs for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender and slightly charred. The Mediterranean dressing will caramelize beautifully on the chicken, adding a deliciously sweet and tangy flavor to each bite.

  6. Serve and Enjoy: Once the kabobs are cooked to perfection, remove them from the grill or broiler and let them rest for a few minutes. Then, serve them hot with your favorite side dishes. Serve over rice, with warm naan bread, or pita bread to make gyro-inspired sandwiches. Top with fresh tomato, cucumber, feta, and tzatziki for the most incredible weeknight dinner.

For an extra touch of Mediterranean flair, garnish the kabobs with a squeesze of fresh lemon juice, sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley, or a drizzle of extra Mediterranean dressing before serving. These simple garnishes add freshness and color to the dish, making it even more visually appealing and appetizing.

How to Store Leftover Kabobs

If you happen to have any leftover kabobs (which is rare because they're so delicious!), store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They make a fantastic next-day lunch or dinner option and can be easily reheated in the microwave or oven.

These Greek chicken kabobs are a fantastic way to bring the flavors of the Mediterranean into your kitchen. With just a few simple ingredients and easy steps, you can create a mouthwatering meal that will impress your family and friends. So fire up the grill and get ready to enjoy a taste of Greece with these delicious kabobs. Enjoy!
