I’m sure anyone that’s from Greece would cringe at my attempt to make “Greek Food”. I am well aware that a true greek salad does not actually have lettuce, but this is more my take on Greek than anything authentic.
I would describe this meal as fresh. I hope you enjoy!
Chicken Souvlaki Skewers (makes approx 4-5 skewers)
1 to 1 1/2 breasts of chicken
1 large zucchini, cut into 1 inch sections
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Cut chicken breast into 1 1/2 inch squares, or desired size. In a ziplock bag mix together lemon juice, oregano, olive oil and garlic. Add chicken, close bag and mix around well. Let chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Place chicken and zucchini alternately on skewer. Grill until cooked thoroughly.
