Bringing you all some springtime vibes with these Lemon Chicken Skewers with Creamy Feta Sauce. Grilled (or roasted) spiced herb chicken, served with a honey-lemon vinaigrette and the most deliciously addicting creamy feta sauce. It doesn’t get more delicious than this grilled chicken…simple, healthy, extra colorful, super flavorful, and so delicious. A fun switch-up from the usual chicken dinner.

I am officially feeling spring in the air, and geez, I love it. Yes, we do have snow in the forecast this week, but after the sunniest spring weekend I have nothing but spring recipes on my mind and it’s exciting. Clearly, I’m feeling an odd burst of energy and I blame it all on the sunshine, it’s just refreshing.

The days of full sunshine inspired me to break out my grill pan and make these fun chicken skewers. They’re chock full of Moroccan-inspired flavors and truly the most delicious, addicting creamy feta sauce. I know this is cheesy of me to say, but I really am so excited to share these with you guys! My family loved this recipe. It’s perfect if you need something quick and easy to cook up this week.

The Inspiration

As I mentioned above, this recipe was created with Moroccan flavors in mind. But then they also have a slight Greek twist with that creamy, salty feta sauce.

Years ago I made some grilled Moroccan chicken to serve alongside my homemade naan. I remember enjoying it so much, so I did my best to recreate those flavors today! Only I added a few touches to make the recipe even better.

Let’s talk about the details

I marinate the chicken with a combination of some of my favorite spicy Moroccan flavors. It’s a combination of olive oil, smoked paprika, cumin, cayenne, a small pinch of cinnamon, garlic, ginger, and lots of cilantro and parsley. If you don’t love cilantro? Just use the parsley and maybe a handful of mint.

Now, when I say marinate, I really just mean toss the chicken up and let it sit while you get everything else for serving together.

I’m one of those people that never has time to marinate anything, so instead, do a quick marinade. It’s not the most ideal I suppose, but it works, and everything still comes out delicious.

While the chicken sits, I mix up a quick, lemony sun-dried tomato vinaigrette to serve over the chicken that adds that lemony touch to each bite.

Now, onto that feta sauce

As you might expect, I couldn’t share this recipe without including a sauce. You all know how it goes around here, never enough sauce. Enter this delicious feta sauce. It’s whipped feta cheese, with a bit of yogurt, lemon, and whatever herbs you have on hand…or love the most.

The salty feta creates an addicting sauce. Every spoonful is delicious, but it’s especially great over this lemon chicken.

Once you have everything all made/prepped, just grill chicken, and serve it all up! It’s worth the wait!

I served the lemon vinaigrette and chicken with fresh naan and crispy roasted potatoes. I used homemade naan, but feel free to use your favorite store-bought pita or flatbread.

I then added a very generous amount of that feta sauce, fresh herbs, and a few extra slices of lemons to top the dish off.

Super pretty, on the (very) healthy side, and so very delicious.

These skewers definitely have a little kick to them so the creamy feta sauce is the perfect touch. Everything about this meal is delish. It’s hard to beat…especially when served up with potatoes on the side…and naan. YUM.

Ingredients

Feta Sauce

  • 6 ounces feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh tender herbs such as dill basil or parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

Instructions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine 3 tablespoons olive oil, the paprika, cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, 3 cloves garlic, ginger, cilantro, parsley, and a pinch each of chili flakes and salt. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Marinate for 15 minutes or up to overnight in the fridge.
    2. Meanwhile, make the vinaigrette. In a jar, combine 1/4 cup olive oil, the lemon juice, red wine vinegar, honey, sun-dried tomatoes, 1 clove garlic, and a pinch each of chili flakes, salt, and pepper.
    3. To make the feta. Combine the feta, yogurt, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Blend until creamy. Stir in the herbs, paprika, and a pinch of red pepper flakes.
    4. Set your grill, grill pan, or skillet to medium-high heat. Take skewers and thread the chicken, artichokes, and asparagus pieces on. Grill the skewers until lightly charred and cooked through, turning them occasionally throughout cooking, about 10 to 12 minutes total. Alternately, you can roast the chicken at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
    6. Serve the chicken with the vinaigrette and feta sauce spooned over top. Top with fresh herbs and serve with naan and additional feta on the side.

    This recipe packed a bunch of flavor! Everything complemented each other so well. Really enjoyed making this for dinner. Thanks for another great recipe, Teighan 🙂

    By far the best recipe EVER! Followed recipe exactly and it was the best combination of flavors we’ve ever had. My husband called it a flavor explosion. Loved the sun dried tomato vinaigrette. Plan to make this a few times a month!!! Thank you for this.

    I’ve made this twice now and the feta sauce is a must to accompany these kebabs. I love it for when I don’t have a lot of time to marinate chicken – the flavours are unreal. I did skip the artichoke & asparagus this week because it was for a joint meal and my friend was providing the vegetables, but I recommend this dish any way you can. BBQ’d eggplant is also an excellent accompaniment.
    For the person looking for a cayenne substitute, I subbed in a curry blend that had similar Moroccan flavours.

    Another fabulous take on kabobs. I used onion and peppers on the skewers along with artichoke hearts and asparagus. Both sauces are a must. I puree sauces in food processor to get them smooth. Fresh ginger a must. Love everything about this.

    1. Hey Lindsy,
      I would skip the cayenne pepper. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan
