Lemon Pepper Chicken Skewers with Tzatziki Dip
July 20, 2012 § 2 Comments
This weekend I was invited to a potluck dinner birthday celebration (great idea) and was in charge of an appetizer. Being a typical girl, I thought, “Oh I’ll do something nice and light” (or fat-free, low-cal, fad-diet friendly etc). I remembered an important lesson from the great Ina Garten to go for an app that is great at any temperature, so I ditched the dip and even my beloved bruschetta for a skewered protein. I’ve been on a huge Greek Yogurt kick so when I found this Tzatziki recipe, I knew it was love.
The appetizer was a huge hit and so easy to put together. It was perfect for the warm weather and I could see this dish being great May through September.
Marinade: 1/4 c. e.v.o.o + 4 cloves minced garlic + 2 tbsp. lemon juice + 1 tsp black pepper + 1 tsp salt + 1/2 tsp thyme
Whisk together and mix with bite-sized boneless skinless chicken breast. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
What’s that? Are you inviting me to your next barbecue? Why yes, I’d be happy to bring my skewers.
