Grilled Lemon Oregano Chicken & Shrimp Skewers

Course: Dinner
Calories: 291kcal
Author: Jenn


  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 pound large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • zest from one lemon
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice juice from approximately one lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh oregano minced
  • wooden skewers


  • Fill a 9x13" cake pan about 1/3 full of water. Place wooden skewers in cake pan to soak. Set aside.
  • Prepare chicken by trimming off fat and cutting into cubes. Peel and devein shrimp.
  • In a bowl, combine lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and oregano.
  • Pour out water in cake pan and thread chicken and shrimp onto soaked skewers. Tip: it's best to not mix the shrimp and chicken because the chicken will take longer than the shrimp to cook.
  • When all skewers are threaded, place inside cake pan and pour prepared marinade over the skewers. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for up to 3 hours for the chicken (less time is best for the shrimp)
  • Preheat grill (or grill pan) to medium-high heat. Place chicken skewers on hot grill and cook for a few minutes, and then flip. Add shrimp skewers to grill and cook each side for a minute or two. Be careful to not overcook. Serve and enjoy!
