Sun dried tomatoes, fresh oregano, garlic, lemons, and virgin olive oil all remind me of the Mediterranean summers. When I make this grilled chicken dish, I am transported to the Sicilian Countryside at a outdoor bbq. These kabobs are fast and easy to make, have lots of flavor and are great for your summertime grilling. Let’s cook!
