You've never had a taco like this! Souvlaki chicken topped with lots of freshness and tzatziki sauce makes one yum of a bite.
A nicely made chicken souvlaki is one of the best flavor combinations around, and these souvlaki-style tacos are a fun way to get all the things you love about Greek food concentrated into a few perfect bites.
All the different components come together really quickly, and you can have these on the table in no time. So switch up taco night this week and make these instead!
I love using boneless skinless chicken thighs for this recipe because with the yogurt marinade they just come out so juicy and succulent, but feel free to substitute some chopped up chicken breasts if that's what you prefer.
Just chop up a couple ingredients to make the salsa.
Same with the tzatziki. Let these hang out in the fridge while the chicken marinates.
Grill up the chicken, then give it a rough chop. I do this on my flat grill pan, so I chop it right up in the pan. If you are grilling outside, just toss them onto a cutting board after they are cooked.
Before serving, lightly grill the tortillas to get some color on them.
The beautiful spread.
So much flavor!
