Make your own homemade chicken souvlaki, also known as chicken kebabs or chicken skewers!
Souvlaki is one of the most popular street foods in Greece. It’s tasty, wholesome and it tastes like heaven! Best served with pita, tomato and tzatziki sauce, it is the definition of comfort food for Greeks.
The most important step in making a perfect Greek souvlaki is the marinade. For this traditional chicken souvlaki recipe, the chicken is first marinated to soak up all the wonderful and flavorful aromas. Then it is cooked on high temperature, to get crunchy, beautifully colored and juicy. Make sure to choose some good quality chicken breasts and season with a selection of Greek spices like thyme or oregano. Coat with extra virgin olive oil and add lime zest to give a citrus aroma to the souvlaki. Marinading your chicken souvlaki in the fridge for at an hour will allow the flavors to blend and give their aromas to the meat.
