For the past year I found a new love of Greek food. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it. So I’ve finally decided to talk it opon myself to try out making some of these Greek recipes that I love!
One of my favorite Greek dishes is chicken souvlaki wrapped in a pita. I’ve tried this recipe in two separate occasions and my boyfriend definitely approves!
Im also adding my homemade tzatziki sauce (soooo yummy) in a separate post, so look for that as well, since what’s chicken souvlaki without tzatziki sauce.
Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think!
2 chicken breasts
1 tbsp oregano
3 cloves garlic
Half a small lemon
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 ziploc bag
Combine all ingredients in a ziploc bag
Minced the garlic or use a garlic press (so much easier)
Squeeze the juice of half a small lemon
And shake all the ingredients as to fully and evenly coat the chickens
Place the ziploc bag with chicken in the fridge and let it marinate I saw 1 hour is a good amount of time. However I think 30 mins – 5 hours works well too, its all personal preference.
Since I don’t have a grill readily available I baked my chicken
Bake the chicken for 35-40 mins
Flip chicken over half way through
Time to assemble
Warm your pita bread
Layer with tomato, lettuce, sliced red onion, cubed chicken and tzatziki sauce
