Chicken Souvlaki

The grill is back in business.  Just in time for my warmer weather cravings!  Bring on the fresh ingredients and Mediterranean flavors.

I could eat Greek food every day.  Seriously.  And although there are a few places in my area that serve good eats, there's nothing better than homemade.

This dish is a cinch to make.  It literally takes minutes.  You can make the tzatziki and the salad ahead of time, and dinner will be on the table fast.


Fire up the grill and try it out this weekend!

Chicken Souvlaki
adapted from Food & Wine

4 chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon dried oregano
salt and pepper
tzatziki
pita bread
butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup chopped red onion
chopped fresh dill

Turn on grill.  In a bowl, add oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper.  Add chicken to mixture and toss.  Thread onto skewers if you like.  Grill over high heat until done, about 5 minutes.  Transfer chicken to a plate.

Spread both sides of pita with butter and grill until golden, about 3-4 minutes.

Place pita on plate and top with chicken, followed by tzatziki, onion and dill.
