- 2 chicken breasts
- Olive oil
- 1 lemon
- Pepper and salt
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Dried oregano
Kitchen equipment needed
- Wooden skewers
- Griddle pan
- Chefs knife
- Cutting board
- Citrus juicer
Preparation — 10 minutes + 15 minutes waiting time
CLEAN the chicken breasts by trimming excess fat. DICE the chicken fillets in 2 cm cubes and place it into the bowl. SQUEEZE juice from the lemon using a citrus juicer, add to the bowl. FINELY chop the cloves of garlic and add into the bowl along with 3 tablespoons dried oregano.
SEASON with salt and pepper, add 4 tablespoons olive oil and mix everything together. PLACE the bowl with the diced chicken into the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
Finishing up the chicken souvlaki — 15 minutes
FETCH the bowl with the marinated diced chicken and grab a handful wooden skewers. PIERCE at least 4 pieces of chicken on a wooden skewer. REPEAT this step until you’ve used up all of the chicken.
HEAT up a griddle pan on maximum heat. GRILL the chicken souvlaki on all sides for 8 – 10 minutes, until nicely browned. REPEAT this step for the remaining skewers.
SERVE the chicken souvlaki with pita bread, tzatziki, oven-roasted tomatoes and a nice Greek salad, as can be seen on the pictures. Click on the pictures below to see each of the recipes. Enjoy your meal!
