Tzatziki Chicken Skewers
These Greek-inspired grilled chicken skewers with tzatziki sauce can either be a quick grab-and-go appetizer or the centerpiece of a full dinner spread. Chop the veggies & chicken and make (or buy) the tzatziki sauce at home so all you have to do at the campsite is assemble & grill the skewers.
- Basting Brush
- Heat Resistant Gloves
- Portable Grill (optional)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 lemon juiced
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into 1” pieces
- 1 small zucchini sliced into 1/4” moons
- 1 red onion chopped
- 14 cherry tomatoes
- ½ cup prepared tzatziki store-bought or recipe as follows
- Tzatziki Sauce
- ½ cup Greek yogurt
- ¼ cucumber seeds removed & chopped fine
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
- 2 cloves garlic finely minced
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, garlic powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Set aside for 30 minutes (up to 2 hours) to marinate, tossing occasionally.
- To make the tzatziki (can be made ahead):
- Remove excess moisture from the chopped cucumber by blotting with a towel. Place the cucumber, Greek yogurt, mint, garlic, and salt in a small bowl and mix to combine.
- Cover & store in your cooler if making ahead of time.
- Prepare a grill or campfire for grilling.
- Thread the chicken and vegetables onto skewers.
- Once the grill is ready, place the skewers on the grill grate and grill, turning every few minutes so all sides cook evenly. The chicken will need to cook 3-5 minutes per side, and the veggies will need roughly 10-12 minutes.
- Remove skewers. Serve with tzatziki for dipping. Enjoy!
