Greek Chicken Kebabs with Homemade Chips and Greek Salad


Chicken is a big staple in our house and with Mr S being big into his training at the moment gets eaten at least 5 times a week probably by him and Bubs, personally this pregnancy I have preferred the vegetarian route however I did destroy two skewers of these tasty chicken kebabs they were so good. 


In London so far this summer has not been great with quite a few rainy days, I feel we peaked too early when it came to the hot weather, just hoping it means we get an Indian Summer in September, which would be great as I will not be pregnant any more and extra hot. The weather though does effect for me what I feel like eating and this dish was like a big plate of summer so it was great for a quick dinner on the odd day I did see a few sunrays peeking out. 

I served it with homemade chips, which I tend to prefer now to pre- made oven chips, just slice up a large potato, season with salt, pepper, olive oil and cook at 190 Fan for around 30-35 minutes. A quick Greek salad, my variation of this was made from red peppers, tricolour tomatoes, cucumber, spring onion and feta with a simple vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper dressing. I also brought this delicious seeded flatbread from Sainsburys to serve with it. 

This makes a great family mid-week meal, hope you all enjoy recreating it.
