Greek Chicken Kabobs With Greek Seasoning Blend

These were a hit with the whole family. I thought I had made too much but there wasn't any leftover! The Greek Seasoning blend is easy to make, I had everything on hand. If you don't have fried lemon zest/peel, just omit and when you're marinating add fresh lemon zest. 
Serve this with some Tzatziki sauce if you like, and pita bread.
The seasoning is versatile. Use it for other meats, or in a cucumber, yogurt salad dressing, in a vinaigrette  So many things to use it with.

Give Peas A Chance Greek Chicken Kabobs

Boneless skinless chicken cut into bite sized pieces (lamb, pork, shrimp, or beef can be used also)
Vegetables such as
Brussel sprouts
Zucchini
Onion
Bell Peppers
Jalapenos
Mushrooms

Olive oil
Greek Seasoning Blend
Lemon juice
Salt- optional

Soak the bamboo kabob skewers in water, you can dye them at the same time. They will burn less if you soak them.
Toss the chicken pieces in a little olive oil with fresh lemon juice. Toss with some Greek Seasoning blend.
In a separate bowl, toss the vegetables in olive oil, lemon juice, Greek Seasoning Blend.
Thread the chicken and vegetables on the skewers.
Grill or broil kabobs until chicken is cooked through

* I thread the jalapenos on like rings, the other pieces of food keep them in place.
