Midweek Eats!

Hello readers! I hope that you all have been having a wonderful and yummy week so far.

I have had one very crazy week already and it is only Wednesday! So, unfortunately I am going to have to keep it short and sweet today.

I wish I had lots of photos of all the yummy and healthy food that I have been eating, but truth be told… it’s hasn’t been much of either. Mostly Panaera for dinner…. Chicken noodle soup and Greek salad or Smoothie King smoothies. Which both are pretty good when you’re hungry, but not nearly as great as some of the yumminess I cooked up last week. Buuuuuttt, this is what happens when you are moving and in between houses.

That being said, I hope to be back to cooking and restaurant hoping next week. In the meantime… here is a little re-play from one of my “Monday’s with Michelle” posts, just in case you didn’t get a chance to read it on E. Payne’s Blog Makes me wanna Holler.
Football season is approaching us yet again, and with it, it brings potlucks, parties and gatherings. Every (wo)man should have their go to dishes that will woo their company. I’m not talking about wings and meatballs, let’s change it up (just a little) this year. On the menu this season we’ve got some homemade versions of some classic snacks, Mediterranean chicken skewers, Salsa, Guacamole and Spinach dip with Crostini to name a few.

Today let’s take a look at Mediterranean Chicken with Greek Yogurt dipping sauce.

Mediterranean Chicken Skewers

What You'll Need:
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast tenders
  • 2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs Olive oil
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic
  • 1 Tbs fresh chopped Parsley
  • ½ Tbs Salt/Pepper
  • ½ Tbs fresh chopped Oregano
  • ½ Tbs fresh chopped Thyme
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Greek yogurt dipping sauce
  • 8oz plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cucumber seeded and finely diced
  • 2 Tbs minced garlic
  • ½ tbsp salt/white pepper

What You'll Need To Do:
  1. Mix lemon, olive oil, salt/pepper, oregano and thyme in a Ziploc bag (large enough to hold the chicken).
  2. Add the chicken to the Ziploc bag mixing well to ensure it is completely coated and allow to marinade for 30 minutes to an hour.
  3. While the chicken is marinating, empty the yogurt into a bowl and add garlic, cucumber and salt/pepper.
  4. Mix well and taste, add more salt/white pepper if necessary and refrigerate.
  5. Once chicken is done marinating, skewer down the center and place on a foil lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes or until done.
  7. Serve with Greek yogurt dipping sauce.
