Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce

chicken souvlaki

Chicken Souvlaki:

  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, sliced once cooked

  • Pita bread, grilled or broiled (this recipe makes enough for approx. 4 pitas)

  • Lettuce, for pita

  • Grape tomatoes, sliced in half for topping

  • Feta cheese, for topping

Mix the first four ingredients in a bowl and marinate the chicken breasts for at least an hour. I pounded the chicken breasts out so that they would be thinner and cook faster. Grill the chicken for approximately 8 minutes per side, until cooked all the way through. Top each warm pita with sliced chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, feta, and tzatziki sauce (recipe below). Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 2 6-ounce containers of Greek yogurt (I used non-fat Fage)

  • juice of 1.5 lemons

  • approx. 1/3 cup English cucumber, peeled and chopped (or peeled)

  • 1 clove of garlic, minced

  • 1-2 tb fresh dill (measure to taste)

  • 1 tb rice wine vinegar (approx.)

  • few dashes of salt

Mix together all ingredients and refrigerate.
