Oh how I love Greek food. Souvlaki, salad, and tzatziki. This continues to be a summer time fave, especially since BBQ season may be over sooner than I think, I can't help but want to get my fill. This marinade keeps chicken very tender, and all that tasty garlic creates a great aroma. I usually serve up with roasted potatoes, or rice. But I have been meaning to find a good recipe for those tasty lemon potatoes. I keep forgetting to get the recipe from a friend, who was fortunate enough to marry into this fabulous culture. I will get it, try it and post soon. OPA!
Chicken Souvlaki, Traditional Greek Salad & Tzatzki
To prepare souvlaki, combine the first 7 ingredients in a bowl; and mix well.. Add chicken and toss to coat. Marinate chicken in refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning once.
Remove chicken from bowl; discard marinade. Thread the chicken onto each of 4 (8-inch) skewers.
Cooking options: BBQ of course, 8-10 minutes. If it's dead of winter, I have made this on broiler pan in oven at 400 F.
Recipe Stolen from a beautiful food blog I stumbled across, Big, Bold, Beautiful Food, you can see more here . I am sure I will be referencing her a lot. I can't believe I am using her Tzatziki recipe when Ninette has soooo much more to offer...
