Greek Chicken Souvlaki
Greek Chicken Souvlaki, or as I like to call it, Souvlaki Light. Why? Because I don't cook it over a grill and I don't cut it into uniform pieces and it's really my Greek Heritage Cooking Simplified version of Souvlaki. No shame here! Just Souvlaki as an easy weeknight dinner for today's busy families or uber-busy young professionals. Here's the recipe.
You don't have to be rushed to cook this for dinner, but if you are, you'll appreciate that this can be ready in less than 30 minutes, and your side dish can be prepared up to two days earlier! All you do is bring it out of the refrigerator and spoon it onto your plate. It's my Raw Zucchini Salad.
Customize. Yes, once you've prepared this, you'll be able to do it without looking at measurements. You'll just sprinkle on the salt, the oregano and so on. You'll develop a feel for this, and it will become one of those classic go-to dinners that everyone likes.
|Once you've got the hang of it, you can almost season the chicken blindfolded!
Take it to the next level. When you have time, chop all of the traditional veggies, prepare the Tzatziki sauce, warm some pita or naan bread and wrap the souvlaki in all of that Greekish deliciousness. Simple is always available, so keep it that way when you're busy. Dinner will be healthy, delicious and available in 30 minutes. Here's the recipe.
