Chicken Souvlaki

Serves 2

Preparation and Cooking Time: 3 hours

Just like my tzatziki recipe, this is a dish that I fell in love with whilst on holiday in Crete. I was taken with its fresh, tangy, herby flavours and I have since worked on creating my own, authentic recipe to transport me back to Crete each time I make it.

This is a perfect meal for a hot, summer’s day, paired with an ice cold lager or a gin and tonic.






2 Chicken breasts

1 Lemon

2 Cloves of Garlic

1 Tsp Oregano

Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

Approximate Cost of Dish- £2.50


1. Dice your chicken breasts into bite-size chunks.


2. Zest and squeeze your lemon into a bowl.


3. Crush your two cloves of garlic into the same bowl.


4. Add your oregano to the bowl.


5. Add a splash of olive oil to your bowl.


6. Marinade your chicken in the mixture for roughly 2 hours.


7. Cook in a griddle pan or a George Foreman grill until cooked through.


8. Serves with chips, salad and tzatziki, the Greek way!
