More About This Recipe

  • When I first heard of Chicken Souvlaki, I immediately wrote it off as a greasy, double-fried something or other that I wasn’t interested in.

    But this was before I had actually seen or tasted it. As it turns out, this marinated chicken dish is wonderful and craveworthy – something that my whole family loves. Go figure!

    But there are only so many chicken souvlaki sandwiches we can eat. At some point, you want it to be a little different…without losing whatever it is that makes it great.

    My solution? Put it on a stick. No, I’m serious. It’s amazing what threading a piece of chicken onto a kabob skewer can do for its coolness factor. I’m telling you…this is recipe gold.

    These Chicken Souvlaki Kabobs are easy to eat. They are simple, but totally delicious. And imagine all the things you can serve these with. I went with a simple tomato, basil and red onion salad. But these would be awesome with spinach feta rice or served on a Greek salad. You could even serve these as an appetizer before a Greek-themed meal.
