• Chicken Skewers with Mediterranean Magic Seasoning


Chicken Skewers with Mediterranean Magic

By Andrew Zimmern

In this recipe, I marinate chicken thighs in my new Mediterranean Magic seasoning, lemon and olive oil, before skewering the meat and cooking it in a hot pan. Serve it as a rice bowl, stuffed into pitas or rolled up in flatbread with a tomato and cucumber saladtzatziki sauce and zhug.

Chicken Skewers with Mediterranean Magic Seasoning


  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Mediterranean Magic seasoning
  • Israeli salad, for serving
  • Zhug, for serving
  • Tzatziki sauce, for serving
  • Rice, pita or flatbread, for serving



In a large non-reactive bowl or zip top bag, mix together the chicken thighs, lemon juice, onion, olive oil and Mediterranean Magic seasoning. Make sure the chicken is fully coated with the marinade, cover and refrigerate overnight.

Soak bamboo skewers in water for 20 minutes; drain. Cube the chicken thighs and thread the meat onto the skewers.

Preheat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the skewered chicken, and griddle on all sides until crispy and cooked through, about 10-12 minutes.

Serve over rice with a scoop of Israeli salad, zhug and tzatziki, stuffed into pitas or rolled up in flatbread.
