Chicken Souvlaki

This is a great, simple recipe for grilled chicken, with a refreshing flavor, thanks to the lemon juice.

Chicken Souvlaki
Source: Cooking Light
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise and cut into (1/2-inch-thick) slices
  • Cooking spray
Combine the first 5 ingredients in a zip-top plastic bag; seal and shake to combine. Add chicken to bag; seal and shake to coat. Marinate chicken in refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning once.
Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Thread the chicken and zucchini, alternately onto each of 4 (8-inch) skewers.
Heat a grill pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add skewers; cook 8 minutes or until chicken is done, turning once. Serve with tzatziki sauce.


  1. Looks great! I just posted a simple chicken recipe today too - chicken skewers with pineapple and chimichurri. Great minds think alike?

  2. We make these all the time. Love this meal!
