Chicken Souvlaki

Hello!  How are y’all doing today?  I wanna share a recipe with you that I’ve made countless times. It’s super easy, delicious, and very filling.  The original recipe is actually from Sandra Lee ( SHOCKING, I know 😉 ). I’ve made a few changes here and there  over time and have found that MY version is better! 

Ingredients:

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch chunks

1 tsp dried dill weed

3 cloves of garlic, minced

juice of 1 lemon

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tbsp greek seasoning blend

about 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil- I just drizzle it in so I’ve never measured!

Mix together everything in large bowl and toss chicken around it the marinade until its evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

 

Tzatziki Sauce

————————

1 cucumber, grated or diced small

1 cup plain greek yogurt

juice of 1 lemon

3 cloves garlic, grated or minced super fine

pinch of salt

pinch of black pepper

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Mix all together and refrigerate until ready to use. This is best made about an hour in advance so that the flavors have time to marry.

 

Toppings- Chopped romaine lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced red onion

You will also need bread…I used naan because I think it adds a little something extra to the recipe. You can also use pita bread, flour tortillas..pretty much anything you would like!

Directions:

Heat a couple of tbsps of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook until completely cooked through. Grill naan bread on stovetop grill just until heated. Now its time to arrange. Pile chicken, veggies, and tzatziki onto bread and enjoy!

Not the prettiest picture but it sure was delicious!
