11+ Recipe Ideas for the Mediterranean Chicken Skewers from Costco

We buy the grilled Mediterranean-Style chicken skewers at Costco about every other month and I like to use them for quick and easy weeknight meals.  They are also great for an “emergency snack” when I am starving in the middle of the day!

The skewers are high in protein and low in fat along with being pretty tasty.

That sounds like a winning combination to me!

Ingredient List

The chicken has the following ingredients:

  • Chicken breast
  • Water
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Vinegar
  • Potato starch
  • Salt
  • Lemon juice
  • Dextrose
  • Garlic
  • Spices
  • Onion
  • Basil
  • Rosemary
  • Black pepper

Healthy Meal Option!

There is a lot more that goes into the term “healthy” than just calories and other nutritional information.

Yes, these skewers are high in protein and low in fat/calories but they are also:

  • From Vegetarian Fed Chickens
  • Antibiotic Free
  • No Preservatives
  • Gluten Free
  • No Growth Hormones

So yes, the skewers are very healthy!

Cooking Instructions

The packaging provides three methods for cooking the skewers:

  • Oven (16-18 minutes at 375F)
  • Grill (6-8 minutes over Medium High heat)
  • Microwave (2 minutes on High)

Even though the packaging says that the oven is the preferred method for heating these up I use the microwave and they turn out just fine.

Something that confuses me about the skewers is that the package says that:

  • The chicken is fully cooked.
  • The chicken needs to be heated to an internal temperature of 165F.

You should not need to heat the chicken to 165F if it is fully cooked.  A lot of times I will eat these cold right out of the refrigerator so I am not sure what is up with the 165F requirement.

Taste Test

Yes, the chicken skewers are very good. The seasoning is delightful and provides plenty of flavor to the white meat.  The chicken isn’t exactly juicy but it certainly isn’t dry either.

The portion size is just right and it is fun to eat the chicken off the wood skewer.

The last time I bought these they were served with a Costco Caesar salad for a simple but tasty meal that was on the table in less than five minutes.

My daughter likes to eat these with some barbecue sauce but I enjoy them just as they are.

Other Ways to Serve the Mediterranean Skewers

You can get creative with the skewers and serve them a bunch of different ways.  If you take the meat off the stick then you can:

  1. Make chicken tacos
  2. Add to pitas with tzatziki sauce and tomatoes for a twist on gyros.
  3. Toss with Spinach and Cheese Ravioli
  4. Make chicken quesadillas
  5. Dice and mix with mayo, celery and diced onions for a tasty chicken salad

Costco Value

I bought the 28 ounce package of skewers at Costco for $13.99 which works out to a cost of $0.50 per ounce.

You can buy a 6.5 ounce package of grilled chicken skewers at Target for $7.59 which works out to a cost of $1.16 per ounce.

This means that you will save $0.66 per ounce (57%) when you buy the larger package at Costco.

    Love these skewers. Served them Easter Sunday – the adults had ham, the kids went crazy for the chicken skewers! Easy to pop in the oven and just heat up.
    Great recipe ideas, thanks!
