  • 800 gr chicken breast cut into 2 cm cubes

For the yogurt dip:

  • 200 gr Greek yogurt regular or dairy-free
  • 1 garlic clove grated
  • 1 tsp organic lemon zest
  • sea salt and freshly-grated black pepper


  • Cut one lemon into thin round slices and set them aside. 
  • In a large bowl, add the chicken cubes, 4 tablespoons of oil, the juice of one lemon, and a generous pinch of salt, and mix all the ingredients.
  • Thread the chicken cubes onto metal skewers alternating with folded slices of lemon.
  • Cook the chicken lemon skewers on a hot grill or cast iron skillet, turning them often for 5-10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the yogurt with the grated garlic, the lemon zest and 1 tablespoon of oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • When ready, transfer the lemon chicken skewers onto a serving dish and serve them with the yogurt sauce.
