Grilled Chicken Skewers Meal Prep

This chicken marinade for these chicken skewers is absolutely phenomenal! It’s so so good you’ll want to make these little babies all summer long! They’re great for Meal Prep as I explain below but they’re also awesome for a BBQ anytime!

Everyone LOVES food-on-a-stick😁

Plan ahead to marinate these overnight for the absolute best flavor!

I’m asked quite OFTEN for cold lunch boxes and cold meal prep ideas, so we’re always working to create new ideas for you!

These types of meals are convenient when there’s no kitchen available to heat things up. Simply tuck your meal into a cooler or purse and enjoy it when you’re ready.

🍋 ALWAYS use freshly squeezed lemon juice from an actual fresh lemon. Bottled lemon juice from the store will give your salad a strange metallic or overly acidic taste. We want this dish to taste bright and fresh.

💡Want to get the most juice possible from each of your fresh lemons?

Of course, we do!

Here’s a quick trick:

On your counter or a cutting board, press and roll the lemon back and forth very firmly with your hands.

The rolling loosens and breaks down some of the citrus membranes and makes the outside a little more pliable. This makes it easier to squeeze which also means you’ll likely get more juice from your squeeze.

Let me know how this works for you!

Try this with our Homemade Tzatziki!

4 servings


  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt or unsweetened coconut yogurt
  • 2 Tbsps avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 large fresh lemon, zest, and juice of
  • 2 Tbsps tomato paste
  • 4 fresh garlic cloves, pressed
  • 2 tsps ground cumin
  • 2 tsps dried oregano
  • sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken tenders, breasts, or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces

To serve:

  • 4 small garden cucumbers, sliced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 cup green olives



In a large bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients and stir really well.

Add in the chicken pieces and stir to completely coat. Allow it to marinate, covered, for 1 hour or up to overnight, in the fridge.

Preheat an indoor grill pan or an outdoor grill over medium heat.

Carefully thread your marinated chicken pieces onto bamboo skewers.

Grill the chicken until cooked through and nicely charred, around 3-5 minutes per side.

To assemble your meal prep bowls, divide the chopped veggies and olives equally between 4 separate containers.

Top each with the chicken skewers as desired.

This meal prep is excellent served cold.

Refrigerate until ready to serve for up to 3 days. Can be served cold with a dollop of Greek yogurt or Homemade Tzatziki
