Chicken Souvlaki


Chicken Souvlaki


  • 2 pounds chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Skewers
  • For serving: Tzatziki sauce, sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, pita bread


  1. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, oregano, garlic, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Add the chicken pieces to the marinade, ensuring each piece is well-coated. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.
  3. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before grilling to prevent burning.
  4. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Thread the marinated chicken pieces onto skewers.
  5. Grill chicken skewers, turning occasionally, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 10-12 minutes.
  6. Remove the chicken skewers from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.
  7. Serve the chicken souvlaki on skewers or off, with tzatziki sauce, sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, and pita bread on the side.
