When my mom asked me if I wanted her George Foreman grill a few months ago, I said, “ummmm yes, please.”
I like meat (my favorite food is filet mignon), but it can often be labor intensive to cook. Though I do eat a lot of protein rich food from non-meat sources, I do love me some chicken once in awhile – especially since getting enough protein is essential to the Eat Clean Diet.
For some reason, I always have a hard time baking chicken in the oven. I can never seem to get the timing right, and my meat always ends up being dry and chewy.
But with my new hand-me-down grill, cooking chicken is actually fun! Most importantly, it makes my chicken taste wayyyy better.
Now the only annoying part is grill clean-up….
Makes 2 servings (6 skewers)
- 1/2 lb chicken breast
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- ground pepper
- 1/4 large red onion
- tzatziki sauce
Note: skewers are needed for this dish
Place chicken breast in a gallon sized ziplock bag. Add all of the ingredients except the onion into the bag, zip closed, and shake. Slip your marinated chicken in the fridge for a few.
I only marinated the chicken for about half an hour, but the longer you marinade it, the better! This will make it more flavorful.
Cut up the marinated chicken and the onion into pieces and skewer.
Spray the grill with non-stick cooking spray. Place the skewers on the grill for about 6 minutes, rotating occasionally.
Serve with tzatziki sauce and enjoy!
Thanks as always to Jenn for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!
What’s your favorite way to cook meat?
Do you know any good recipes for tzatziki sauce? I cheated and used a store-bought kind.
