Greek Lemon Oregano Kebabs – Antibacterial Compounds

This simple Lemon Oregano Kebabs marinade imparts a delicious flavor to pork or chicken. Fresh oregano is loaded with antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory compounds. It is used extensively in Mediterranean cuisine. We are giving it a Greek flare with the addition of heart-healthy garlic and olive oil as well as some antioxidant boosting lemon.

Greek Lemon Oregano Kebabs Ingredients

  • 1 – 1.5 pounds boneless pork or chicken
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves
  • 4-5 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup olive oil


  1. Cut the pork or chicken into 1-inch cubes.
  2. Zest and juice the lemon.
  3. Using a blender or food processor combine lemon zest and juice, oregano, garlic, and olive oil until smooth.
  4. Pour over meat cubes and let marinate for 1 -4 hours.
  5. Soak bamboo skewers in water at least 10-15 minutes before cooking.
  6. Put the meat on the skewers (it cooks faster and more evenly if you don’t overcrowd them).
  7. Grill or broil until cooked thoroughly.
