Greek Chicken Souvlaki Recipe

Greek Chicken Souvlaki Recipe

Chicken souvlaki is one of my favorite Greek street food items! Tender chicken soaks in a bright lemon garlic marinade, then it’s threaded on skewers and grilled until perfectly juicy and charred. Just don’t forget the tzatziki sauce for that creamy, refreshing touch!

Greek chicken souvlaki makes for an easy and flavorful recipe. Marinate the chicken, thread the pieces on skewers, and grill them up!

Chicken Souvlaki

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 ½-inch cubes

⅓ cup olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

3 cloves garlic minced

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1 teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 recipe tzatziki sauce



Add the chicken, oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper to a large mixing bowl. Stir together. Place the bowl in the refrigerator and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Heat the grill on medium-high heat. Then thread the marinated chicken pieces onto skewers (about 8 to 9 pieces per skewer makes 6 skewers).

Cook the skewers on the grill for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

Served the grilled chicken souvlaki with the tzatziki sauce.
