The best ever 3 ingredient grilled chicken skewer recipe made with just lemon, garlic and oil. Enjoyed best with homemade roasted beetroot hummus, tortilla wraps and grilled veggies.



For lemon garlic grilled chicken skewers:

  • 500 grams chicken breast (cut in 2-inch cubes)
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp garlic (grated)
  • 5 tbsp oil
  • salt
  • pepper

For wraps:


  1. Add chicken to a bowl and add grated garlic, lemon juice, 2 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Mix well and cover with cling wrap (or use an air tight container) - transfer to refrigerator and let marinate for an hour.
  2. Once the chicken has marinated, heat the grill pan for about 2-3 minutes (electric griller or pan or an actual grill). While the grill is heating, insert skewers into the marinated chicken cubes (see note 3) 4-5 pieces per wooden skewer.
  3. Add the skewers to the hot grill and cook for about 2-3 minutes each side. Keep brushing oil and remaining marinade. Cook until the chicken turns brown/ charred or cooked upto your liking. 
  4. Once cooked, transfer the hot grilled juicy chicken to a serving dish. 
  5. If making wraps: spread roasted beetroot hummus over tortilla wraps, add grilled chicken and grilled veggies. Wrap and serve/ eat.


  1. Use whatever veggies you like. I used bell peppers - slice them in juliennes and toss in some oil and salt. Add to griller and  cook until lightly charred.
  2. Here is the step-by-step recipe for homemade roasted beetroot hummus. Click here for more options to use as spreads and dips in this recipe.
  3. Make sure that wooden skewers are soaked in water (at least 30-40 mins) before using them for grilling.
  4. Nutrition info is only for grilled chicken skewers. (not for the wraps and hummus)
