Chicken Souvlaki

A perfect dish to pair with our Homemade Tzatziki



Start by soaking 6-8 bamboo skewers in water. Let them soak for a few hours before using. As we only had a mini George Forman Grill on hand, we cut the skewers in half. We used 7 halves for this recipe.

Cut one boneless skinless chicken breast into 14-16 large chunk and place in a bowl. Coat chicken with a teaspoon of oregano paste, a quarter teaspoon of garlic powder, one teaspoon of lemon juice, half a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.


Start assembling your skewers. We used 2 pieces of chicken, one grape tomato, a chunk of red onion, and red, yellow and orange peppers for each skewer. 



Once they are assembled, cook on a grill. We used our George Forman Grill and it took around 5-8 minutes for them to fully cook. 


Remove from the grill and serve on a bed of rice, couscous or quinoa with some homemade tzatziki!
