Chicken Souvlaki (Greek Chicken)

As I said in a precious posting, we went to a Greek festival this weekend. Hubby and I got the requisite gyro, but our oldest decided to get some chicken souvlaki. He liked it so much that hubby went and got some for himself. I didn’t manage to get a bite since they both wolfed theirs down, so I decided to make my own.

4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 T red wine vinegar
1 T garlic, chopped
1 T dried oregano
Cucumbers, red onions, tomatoes (garnish)

Cut chicken into bits that can be thread onto a kabob. Put chicken strips in a large mixing bowl.

Combine remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk them together. Pour mixture into bowl with the chicken and stir to coat the chicken.

Place bowl in the refrigerator to marinate for eight or more hours. Stir mixture every once in a while to make sure all chicken pieces are getting marinated.

When you are ready to grill the chicken….First, drain the chicken. Then thread the chicken onto the skewers, folding each piece of chicken as you put it on the kabob so the chicken won’t spin around.

Spray the grill with non-stick spray and heat grill to medium-high.

Grill kabobs for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.

We had this with pita bread, leftover couscous salad, some watermelon and tzatziki sauce.

What did the family think? Everyone loved it!
