greek chicken souvlaki ♥

Here is an easy greek chicken souvlaki recipe (this is perfect for summer grilling and so healthy and easy to make!)  it's one of my favorites! enjoy! ♥






Serves 4
Ingredients:
For the tzatziki sauce:
  •  3 – 5.3 oz. cups of Oikos plain, non-fat Greek yogurt(I used 0% plain Oikos)
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeds removed and grated
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh dill
  • juice of one lemon
For the chicken: ♥
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (3-4 oz. each), cubed
  • 1/8 cup white vinegar + 1/8 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cavenders greek seasoning ( about 4 teaspoons )

For the chicken: ( I like to marinade this overnight for a savory taste) add all the ingredients together and marinate in a ziploc bag

Directions:
For the tzatziki sauce: ♥
  1. Add grated cucumber to a bowl with salt. Let sit for 10-20 minutes.
  2. Wring out cucumber with a kitchen towel to remove excess liquid then combine with yogurt, garlic, pepper and dill.
  3. Mix well and set aside.
Preperation ♥
  1. Spray grill with cooking spray and heat on HIGH.
  2. Combine ingredients 2 through 6 in a bowl then add cubed chicken, mixing well so all the chicken is coated. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Thread chicken onto 4 metal skewers.
  4. Lay skewers on the hot grill turning frequently and cooking until chicken is nicely browned on both sides.
  5. Remove from heat and lay over a warm pita (try whole wheat for a healthier version if you like)   Top with cucumber slices, red onion, olives, feta cheese, and tzatziki sauce. enjoy! ♥
