Chicken Souvlaki is a staple in my family’s dinner rotation for four reasons:
1. The ingredients are super simple and easy to have on hand
2. I can have dinner on the table from start to finish in less than 30 minutes (and yes, that INCLUDES prep time Rachel Ray!)
3. It is a perfect combination of lean protein, lots of veggies and some healthy fats
4. It is DELICIOUS!!
Here’s how to do it yourself (serves 2 but can easily be increased accordingly)
2 chicken breasts (we usually have a bit left over)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
Greek seasoning- Epicure makes a great one
A little sprinkle of salt- to taste
Dice chicken into cubes. Marinate in oil, lemon and herbs for 10 min or so. BBQ or pan fry until chicken is cooked through. While chicken is cooking, prepare the Greek salad.
1-2 tomatoes- cut into chunks
1/2 cucumber- chunks
1 pepper (green or coloured)- chunks
1/2 medium red onion- thinly sliced
Olives- we don’t like them, but feel free to add them in if you like.
1/4 cup Feta Cheese, crumbled
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp white balsamic
Salt & pepper to taste
Simply mix all the salad ingredients together.
I cheat- Superstore has a great one on their blue menu. Save-On/Western Family also makes a great sauce.
Serve a few cubes of chicken, some salad and sauce on a plate and enjoy!!
