Feta Chicken Kabobs

The enticing aroma of garlicky chicken permeates the air when these kabobs hit the grill. Biting into the tender meat flavored with garlic, Dijon and feta satisfies all the senses. These Greek inspired Feta Chicken Kabobs are truly winners.

Well, I’m afraid I’m not going to make it to Greece anytime soon, so instead, I’m bringing Greece to my house! This week’s Sunday Supper team will transport you across the globe to dine on street food found from Europe to Asia to North America. You can make all these amazing dishes at home.

Tips for Making These Tender Chicken Kabobs

There are twofold advantages from utilizing a marinade, to infuse flavor and to tenderize. These chicken kabobs illustrate both beautifully.

  • Yogurt does an amazing job tenderizing this chicken. Whether it’s an enzyme or the calcium, the jury is still out. Just make sure your chicken spends at least a couple hour up to overnight the yogurt based marinade so it can work its magic.
  • Having a flavorful marinade is imperative, too. Though the flavors won’t infuse deeply into the meat, it will create an amazing, flavorful crust on these kabobs.
  • Don’t over-cook these feta chicken kabobs or the chicken will be dry. Not as dry as if you didn’t marinate them, but you’ll want to grill just until the chicken loses the pink hue internally, or to about 160 degrees.
  • Also, note that if you use wooden skewers, you should soak them in water for about a half hour to prevent them from incinerating on the grill!

  1. They’re kebabs here but regardless how they’re pronounced, isn’t food on a stick great? I love to make these but I’m going to try your recipe next!

  2. These sounds so fantastic! Thank you for sharing, Liz.

  3. Thanks so much for taking me with you!

  4. I know I’d love this chicken! Lot’s of great flavors:@)

  5. Your kabobs is a keeper recipe for my chicken-loving husband. Good to know that yogurt tenderizes the meat…The feta undoubtedly adds an additional snap of flavor, too. Maybe it will snap me over onto the azure seas surrounding Greece =)

  6. This looks wonderful, and I think my family would love it! I’ve just added it to the “to try” file.
    Have a great weekend, Liz!

  7. The feta is in the marinade, how awesome is that Liz?! Feta in the title and I’m sold!

  8. Before she became a vegetarian, this was one of my daughter’s favorite dishes, except we called it shish tawook and it was Lebanese. 🙂 This must be another of those delicious dishes that everyone wants to claim because it is so good. I love your kabobs with the little red tomatoes on the end, Liz. Just beautiful!

  9. These look so good!!!
    And I just happen to have feta in the fridge! Destiny. 🙂

  10. You’re killin’ me, woman. I was right there…salty breeze in my hair… YUM, these look fantastic!

  11. Kabobs are one of my favorite meals. I have always thought about marinating in yogurt, but never took the plunge. I will now. Since Mediterranean food is my favorite I’m sure this will be a keeper.

  12. I could eat feta by the pound! I can’t wait to make these!

  13. I love anything on a stick sausage, chicken, hot dogs etc. Kabobs are one of my favorite fun meals! Add feta and you have me on your doorstep.

  14. The Pao De Queijo struck a nerve. My first Brazilian food at the airport in Rio and a favorite of my grandchildren. Tried them once with no success, but this is a different recipe and will give it a go!

  15. While I’d definitely love to enjoy one of these on the coast of Greece, I think a weeknight dinner will do for now. Great recipe.

  16. Oh Lizzy you’re so sweet…you sound just like my mom. We do the same things…theme our dinner around a certain place we’d like to visit and pretend we’re there…last evening we visited Paris 😉

    These chicken kabobs look delicious. I love this kind of food!

    Happy Sunday!


  17. OH my! I want to go to Greece sooo bad. I am pinning these right now so I can make them as soon as possible!!

  22. I’ve been wanting to try something different with chicken–these are just the ticket! Plus, it’s an excuse to use the grill. 🙂

  23. I love food on a stick, so easy to eat.. Right?

  24. Liz, what a wonderful Greek “street food” – I love the fact that you used Greek yoghurt and feta in your marinade for the cubed chicken – it sounds like wonderful late summer street fare to me – what a lovely presentation too – the skewers look picture perfect!

  25. Feta is the best, this definitely looks perfect – street food is such a brilliant concept 😀


  26. Liz…I simply must try this! Pinning! Thanks for sharing!

  27. Delicious Liz! One of my favorites. We actually served kabobs at our wedding (which we catered ourselves).

  28. We’ve been at a friend’s cottage and are returning home tomorrow and running back to our cottage on Wednesday! I have been able to comment for a few days, sorry about that. These kabobs look and sound wonderful, marinated in garlicky yogurt is fantastic. We’ll definitely add this to our menu for the labour day weekend.

  29. Liz, pretty sure you used all of my favorite ingredients in these 🙂 I LOVE marinating in yogurt – it’s such a good tenderizer!

  30. Now, these are definitely very different and unique. I am positive these must taste real good. I am making these.

  31. I don’t think I’m heading to Greece any time soon, either (sadly). But I love Greek food and these kebabs must be wonderful with all those flavours xx

  32. Love chicken Kabobs! These look delicious and really love the yogurt marinade!

  33. I just love kabobs. I always forget how tasty they are…your post makes me want to make them tomorrow night! Thank you for sharing, Liz! I’m hosting a giveaway on my blog tomorrow for one of Ryan’s necklaces, and I’d love for you to stop by! I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!

  34. I’m really loving this Greek-style chicken kabobs!

  35. I love the feta marinade! Those chicken kabobs look mouthwatering, Liz.

  36. I wish these kabobs could be fedexed to me!!!

  37. Greece is one of my top 5 places to see before I die. And, you’ve just brought the desire back with a vengeance. I guess I’ll just have to make these and dream for now. 🙂

  38. Hi Liz! What a great idea, using feta in the marinade. This kabob is drool worthy. We are considering Greece for our honeymoon. It’s between there and a 10 day Europe trip!

  39. Love Greek food, especially when feta is involved. I would love to nibble on these kebabs while walking along the shore of a Greek Isle.

  40. Charisse is a huge feta fan and these would make a great post birthday treat.

  41. I love this recipe! It looks full of flavor and I adore feta. Thanks for sharing such a great idea!

  42. Gorgeous kabobs, I love the Mediterranean flavors!

  43. So many of my favorite flavors! And I’m really like the idea of the mustard in the marinade. Going to try that!

  44. You know, I can’t believe I’ve never marinated my chicken in yogurt.. and what a great blend you’ve got here, I must try this for dinner this week:) xx

  45. Mmmmmmmmmm………these look so delectable! I have really enjoyed this street food tour and the kebabs tops it off well!

  46. I love kabobs… especially marinated in yogurt…. it makes the meat so succulent. Looks gorgeous. 🙂

  47. I would love to go to Greece. I think these kabobs though are as close I as I am going to get for a while. I will take it though.

  48. Greek yogurt and feta in the marinade sounds like nothing but incredible to me. What a great way to celebrate the street food of Greece.

  49. Lizzy,
    I love feta but I usually only use it on salad. Great way to incorporate feta into a meal.

  50. I can imagine the beautiful marriage of rosemary and garlic in these kebabs. I usually add cottage cheese to the marination while making chicken tikka (that’s what we call them in India), so I can imagine what feta must have done to these kebabs. It lends a beautiful creaminess to the kebabs. Delicious post Liz 🙂

  51. Wow, it seems like both of us have kabobs on our minds! I love the flavors that have enhanced the chicken on these kabobs, Liz . . . I can ‘feel’ the essence of Greece!
