Greek Chicken Kabobs with Tzatziki

We have had a brief glimpse greek_kabob_1of spring here in Colorado, so that means grilling. This recipe only takes a few minutes to prep and can be on your grill in under an hour.

I would recommend making the Tzatziki at least a few hours before, it is even better if you let it sit in the fridge over night.

Only 30 minutes is required for the chicken to marinate but as with most marinades it gets better the long it sits!

I made my marinade on meal prep day and kept in a gallon sized ziploc bag in the fridge until I was ready to use it. The morning of, I tossed the cubed chicken in and let it sit all day. It was PERFECT by dinner time. Feel free to use what ever veggies you like in place of peppers and mushrooms.
